Photos from Newtonville Books' author-packed grand opening

Newtonville Books opened its doors at its new location a week ago, and the local independent bookstore at its grand opening this past Thursday night was packed even before the advertised 7pm celebration start date. Boston-area literary notables, emerging writers and the general public intermingled at the new gorgeous space. Read on for photos of a few of them. All photos below were taken by writer/photographer Stanley Dankoski.

Newtonville Books has an updated website and can be found on Facebook and Twitter.

The grand opening was covered by Delia Cabe of the Boston Globe, too.

Update: The Newtonville Books counter, comprised of used not-for-sale books, made a mention over at Shelf Awareness.
