Since creating a display of books by local independent publisher Soul Asylum Poetry, Sutton’s Turn the Page bookstore has enjoyed steady sales from the variety of poetry, novels and children’s books. The quality of content and printing attracts repeat customers to this collection of new titles, amid shelves used books at discount prices. The publishing firm was founded by Ken Cowle of Jackson’s Point.
“Last fall, Ken approached us with an assortment of newly-printed books that stand out from the crowd,” bookstore owner Mary Schwab said. “They have a special appeal because they are published here in Georgina and some of the authors are local residents, such as Sutton’s David C. Lawton and Ken himself.”
A Bountiful Adventure by Mr. Lawton has been a popular choice on the shelves of Turn the Page.
The Bear’s Den in Keswick and other outlets in Georgina carry selections too.
