"Is a puzzlement," sang The King of Siam, and won 2 Tony awards and an Oscar for his perplexity. You can score, too, as Bethel's Byrd's Books hosts Puzzle Week, Tuesday, August 20th through Sunday, August 25th. Owner Alice Hutchinson and her staff will have the pieces laid out for you to play, matched by a huge in-store puzzle sale all week long. Join them to gather up a supply of jigsaws and other puzzlements as gifts or pastimes, and enjoy the camaraderie that comes with this popular independent, neighborhood book shop.
Of course, the puzzle sale lasts as long as supplies do, but there's plenty to find at Byrd's Books for that end-of-summer family weekend. Byrd's Books is located at 178 Greenwood Avenue, adjacent to The Toy Room and the nearby landmarked Opera House, across the street from the Bethel Public Library.
Byrd’s Books is a general bookstore that carries only new titles, with a special focus on Connecticut authors, poets, publishers and illustrators. As a proud member of the American Bookseller’s Association and its division, Indiebound, Byrd’s Books participates in the larger community of bookselling nationwide, especially encouraging and promoting a vibrant network of independent bookstores.
A highlight of Bethel's Greenwood Avenue Historic District. Byrd's Books is open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10:00am to 6:00pm, Sundays 12:00 noon to 4:00pm. The bookstore's new location has on-street parking. Municipal parking is available at the Bethel Public Library across the street and the "Old Train Station" which is where Broken Symmetry now resides. There are private lots nearby.
