I AM Books Update

Dear friend,

I am writing to let you know that Jim and I have made the very difficult decision of closing our physical location at 189 North St. in Boston’s North End.

However, this isn’t “addio,” or farewell, but “arrivederci,” or “see you again.”

We hope you follow us on our journey, to keep track of where we go and end up. Keep an eye out for our newsletters and follow us on social media, as we keep you updated on our journey to continue the work we’ve been doing all along. And, of course, keep visiting iambooksboston.com for all the latest releases and recommendations that you have come to trust and value over time.

I want to end by thanking all of you for supporting us throughout the years. Without you, none of the things we accomplished would have been possible.

So let’s continue the voyage, together. Yes, virtually for now, but who knows what surprises the future holds.

Grazie di cuore. Thank you with all my heart.

Nicola & Jim

A few extra things:
Mark your calendar!
We are planning a “goodbye event” on Saturday, Sept. 12 (rain date Sept. 13). People can stop by outside our doors at 189 North St. to say bye, to pick up their online orders, and receive some goodies! More details coming soon.
100% operational online
Our physical store is closing, but we are focusing all our energies on our online operations. That means more books, more curation, and more attention to your needs when it comes to books in Italian, books about Italy and Italian American culture. Over the coming weeks we will send you updates on special offers and much more. So if you’ve been shopping online with us, nothing changes… actually, it’s only getting better!
