Ever since the hardcover version of Words In Our Beak Volume One, (seen in the first image atop this entry) was published (this past November) by Ingram Spark, I've been sending out press releases to bookstores, nature centers, and speciality shops. I've also queried some stores in hopes of getting them to let me host an event re this book.
One of the places that I reached out to is book culture On Columbus (a bookstore that has a location on the UWS in NYC), near to The American Museum of Natural History. A partial view of this store can be seen in the second image atop this entry (that I found on the Internet).
I contacted them by email (with my a "copy" of press release) on 12-5-2017 and a request discuss the possibility of my doing event at their store. The other day, I heard back from the event coordinator.
Here's a copy of his email to me:
Thank you for your interest in Book Culture! Unfortunately, our calendar is already at capacity for events for the upcoming season. We are not able to host you. It looks like we've sold some copies, though, so I'll make sure it's back in stock soon. I wish you luck with your tour!
I'm thrilled to have received this news, for as anyone who has been to Book Culture Columbus knows, the store is AMAZING! I hope that peeps living in #NYC as well as the surrounding area can pop over to #bookcultureOnColumbus and have a look at it.
After all, 2018's calendar year is #TheYearofTheBird, as I stated in a recent post on PY's FB Page.
Plus, Valentines Day is just a little over one month a way, and it's the perfect gift for #birdlovers who #lovebirds!
Btw, if you don't see a copy of #WordsInOurBeaKVolumeOne, in Book Culture Columbus, please mention this announcement to a staff member, and have them look it up for you. The ISBN number is 9780996378529, but I believe they just need the title to look it up.
The specifics of the book culture On Columbus location which I am referring to are the following:
450 Columbus Ave

New York, NY 10024

On another note, other news regarding the hardcover version of Words In Our Beak Volume One, includes a review that I just discovered on Amazon.
It was evidently posted (in late December of 2017) by the writer/musician/teacher Joan Budilovsky, and the review appears like this within the Amazon page for Words In Our Beak Volume One.
"5.0 out of 5 stars A bird's eye perspective!
ByYoyoga, Inc. (Consignment) on December 25, 2017
Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are not yet a bird-lover, you will be after reading this book. Words in our Beak is so enchanting as it follows a little cardinal named, Cam, through the rooftops of NYC and beyond. Cam has so much to share from a bird's eye perspective, it was hard to put the book down. I became enveloped in Cam's world by imagining what it is like to live on a rooftop, choose the right flowers to eat, and listen to the world around in the most intimate, gentle and fascinating ways. Thank you, Cam! I hope to read ever more of your travels in the new year!"
I'm thrilled to have learned of this wonderful review on Amazon. I'm also extremely grateful to know that Words In Our Beak Volume One, is making it's way into #bookstores, especially one as amazing as book culture On Columbus.
