February at Old Town Books

We’re only halfway through February and we’ve already had so many cool things happen in the store. The beginning of the month saw the return of our Valentine’s Day reads, a collection all about animals, and we highlighted some of our favorite nonfiction releases in the store.

We are now finishing off the month with our Black History Month display. We have curated a collection of books for all ages all featuring Black writers, voices, and experiences. Please come check out this important collection today. A full list of books available can be found below.

We also have a collection of books geared towards the upcoming Angelo State Writers Conference. This year the conference is featuring invited writer, Manuel Munoz. We have Munoz’s newest book The Consequences on sale now. We are also highlighting other books from previous invited writers and local writers that are a part of the conference. You can find all these books available below too.

Lastly, to celebrate Presidents’ Day, we are offering amazing Presidents’ Day sales from Saturday, February 17th through Monday, February 19th.
