Miller’s trek across the three states, from Georgia to Alabama to Mississippi landed us in the bookshop, Square Books Junior, located in the historic square in Oxford Mississippi. This quaint store offers a delightful selection of books to pique a child’s imagination. We enjoyed meeting the folks of Square Books Junior and being a part of the activity there.
It’s not only the books that make the children want to come to Square Books, it’s the twice weekly story-time that the shop hosts for children of all ages. Wednesdays and Saturdays give children an opportunity to hear stories read by authors and other in-house storytellers. On the day I was there, story-time ended with a lively selection of songs sung by Jill Moore, the bookseller’s resident musician and story leader who also plays the leading role in maintaining the wonderful selection of books for children. We were happy that Square Books Junior chose Miller’s Opening Night to feature at this past week’s story-time.
