Welcome to Explore More, the new membership club of Explore Booksellers. Over the past year, we've explored creating a more active role for the bookstore in creating community. We've offered more author readings & book signings as well as special events, conversations, interviews, a podcast, a children's story time, and a book club - we have concluded that this is a key service the bookstore can offer the community that we'd like to continue and expand. To do so, working with a team of 15 local literary and community leaders, we've created this membership group, Explore More. To read the Explore More invitation from our founders, click here. When you join as a member of Explore More your membership fees will go to support and expand the kind of programming we've been offering over the past year. We believed it's a valuable way to help maintain and deepen Aspen's community roots, as well as a way to help the bookstore thrive in an expanded role. As a member you'll also enjoy a few perks like a punch card and a newsletter.
We hope you'll consider joining us!
