“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” — Stephen King
When it comes to finding an interesting book, I usually prefer that someone recommends me what to read since there are a lot of books out there and such little time to read all. I go to my friend and ask, “what do you think about this topic and this author?”
The first time being at Sundance was such an unforgettable experience.
It is a place where you will feel welcome and most importantly the stuff helps you individually to find your needs. From the outside, once you get to see the beautiful vintage Levi Mansion, I am sure you will fall in love with it immediately as I did.
Sundance is a peaceful, organized and very creative independent library. The staff helps you with delicacy, respect and attention, making the experience very pleasant. Located in the historic Levy Mansion, Sundance books and music has been proudly serving the community in Northern Nevada for 25 years as an independent book and music store.
Sundance has a knowledgeable staff and a broad selection of books and magazines that deeply links to the community. It simply is an amazing place worth spending your time to choose the next book you will read. It is definitely not your typical bookstore.
Every day they have something new to share with the community along with events happening around the year, such as poetry reading, book signing, story time and more! Sundance is also a good citizen, being a supporter of Food Bank of Northern Nevada and they hold a partnership with Nevada Humanities to support the nightingale Family Foundation.
The favorite part of Christine Kelly, owner of Sundance, is having a local business and linking people to books, sounds, and literature; it is also the most engaging, challenging, creative thing in her life. She loves the people she works with and selling items that she considers “magic” .
An advice from Christine: have no preconceived notions about people.
I also asked her about some of her interesting moments at the bookstore, and she told me the story of
“The Case of the Ticking Purse”
One day, Christine was working in the counter and all of a sudden she hears: tic, tic, tic, tic… (Sound like a clock or… a bomb?) Christine was thinking of a bomb maybe… she didn’t know what to do about it and neither did she discover what was the ticking sound. A story with no end and also just one of many funny/crazy stories that she remembers are part of her experiences at Sundance.
Do not miss the opportunity visit this place. There are not much bookstores like Sundance and the biggest little city is privileged to have such an amazing place to get knowledge and magic from awesome people like Christine and her team.
