Stillwater Books ready to open Thursday

PAWTUCKET – The owners of the new Stillwater Books store are planning a ribbon-cutting ceremony this Thursday, March 1, at 10:45 a.m. The bookstore is located at 175 Main St., on the corner of Roosevelt Avenue across from Slater Mill, and diagonally across from a proposed new ballpark, in downtown Pawtucket.

Stillwater Books is an independent bookshop that will carry new and used books, cards, select gift items, and a large selection of books written by local Rhode Island authors. In addition, the location will serve as a book publishing office for Stillwater River Publications, which has been based in Chepachet and is the state’s largest publisher of books by local writers.

Though it’s opening on Thursday, the store will celebrate its grand opening on the weekend of March 17-18, with author visits, book signings and other activities.
