Booklovers’ Gourmet marks Independent Bookstore Day on April 29

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Independent Bookstore Day and Booklovers’ Gourmet, 72 E. Main St., Webster, is celebrating the occasion with an appearance by Tom Ingrassia.
Mr. Ingrassia is co-author with Jared Churdimsky of “One Door Closes: Overcoming Adversity by Following Your Dreams.” He will talk about the inspiring stories of sixteen people from all walks of life who are featured in the book. Many of them live in Central Massachusetts. They have overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles in order to achieve their dreams.
Also sharing their stories in this special event from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on April 29th are Scherrie Payne (formerly of The Supremes), June Monteiro of The Toys, and the late Mary Wilson of The Supremes who wrote the epilogue for the book.
Through their powerful, first-person accounts, these dreamers share a road map guiding the reader to discover how to live with vision, courage, determination and passion.
One Door Closes was named Best Self Help Book by the New England Book Festival and was a finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards. The book is currently being adapted as a documentary film: One Door Closes: Korey’s Courage, which will have its premiere in Worcester in September.
