Store’s end brings out regrets

DESPITE online publishing and digital changes to printing, self published Lanitza author Norman Mjadwesch laments the decision to close Grafton's last dedicated book store, The Book Warehouse.

It was a place he loved to visit to browse and talk books with the staff and it also gave him the opportunity to sell books on consignment.

With his first novel coming out through an online publishing process, the closure will not affect him too badly.

"I will have some printed versions available, and I was thinking of asking Di (store manager Dianne Alderman) to do an author's signing," he said.

"That won't be happening now, which is sad."
