Byrd’s Books Flies Into Town

Alice Hutchinson, owner, Byrd's Books

The following is a press release from Byrd’s Books–

Byrd’s Books will open as a new business Saturday, December 10. Located on the second floor of a newly renovated Victorian that anchors the Dolan Plaza, it is accessible through Molten Java coffee shop’s new location. (Molten Java is not open for business yet, we will post it on once the date is set.)

Byrd’s Books is a general bookstore that carries only new titles, with a special focus on Bethel authors, Connecticut authors, poets, publishers and illustrators. It also carries greeting cards and gifts- with a selection of mugs (remember- there is a coffee shop downstairs!). The bookstore will take special orders and will have gift cards.

Alice has been actively involved in Bethel’s culture for many years- serving on the Planning and Zoning commission for 16 years and serving as First Selectman for one term.  She has two adult children: Sarah, who lives in Bethel; and Stephen, who lives in Manchester, NH.

Ms. Hutchinson is the daughter of Nancy Ivison, who owned Pymander Bookshop in Westport for 30 years. Ms. Hutchinson served as its manager and buyer over the years. She also worked at Barnes & Noble when it first opened in Danbury. Her Master’s of Art degree is in Teaching (MAT) with an emphasis on Young Adult literature.
