Avid book lover and former media sales mogul Erika VanDam had always dreamed of opening a book store. Her dream came to life when she recently opened her Roscoe Village shop, a haven for all local bookworms. Step into the store, and it's easy to sense the passion in the air–as apparent through little details like handwritten "staff favorite" notes, and a large variety of community gatherings and events. The shop offers books of all genres—fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, parenting, biographies, memoirs and more—but its children's section is what you'll want to write home about, with 30% of its inventory dedicated to children's books. Stop by for Sunday Stories & Puppet Making, book signings, and several book clubs, like "Book Lover's Throwdown" and "Middle Grade Bookclub," for young readers ages 8-12. There's truly something for everyone here.
