Free author talk with Debra Stark and “The Little Shop That Could”

March 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- Free

Save the date! Debra Stark will join us on Sunday, March 1 at 3pm, to present her new book, “The Little Shop That Could: A retailer’s love affair with community and food!”

The event is free and open to the public. There will be time for Q&A and book signing after the author presentation.

Debra Stark is the owner of Debra’s Natural Gourmet in West Concord, an institution of eating well and being happy for over 30 years.

For those people who think running a shop is simple, this is the story about turning on lights, buying a register, putting eggs in the fridge. It’s the story about “Open Sesame ” and the ensuing adventure and funny lessons learned. Running a store is a lot more than just paying for inventory like coconut water and aspirin. Okay. Debra’s Natural Gourmet has no aspirin. And sales of coconut water seem to be waning.

This book starts with childhood and a Mom who raised her family with organic food and natural medicine, who taught her children to question authority and march to their own drummers. This story introduces characters along the way these last 30 years, and ends with community that is strong, comforting and hopeful.
