Schuler places in 2 nation-wide contests!

We are pleased to announce that our Lansing area stores placed among the top winners in two recent publisher contests!

The first involved a contest sponsored by fantasy author and all-around-God Neil Gaiman. Neil challenged bookstores to throw Halloween parties for his Newbery award-winning title The Graveyard Book: Submit a video of the party and Neil would pick his favorite. Winner would earn a bookstore appearance and signing with Neil. (swoon.)

According to Neil, about 40 bookstores entered and his publisher Harper Collins narrowed it down to the top 11 entries. After what seems to have been a harrowing decision, Neil decided to grant author visits to two winners. Unfortunately Schuler came in “first place” after the two Grand Prize winners, but we are still thrilled to have placed that high! (Besides, think about it — Neil Gaiman spent time contemplating our Okemos store! Schuler is now firmly on his radar, which can only bode well for future tours!)

Here’s the video we submitted of the party:

Our Lansing location (in the Eastwood Towne Center) recently took third place in a display contest sponsored by Quirk Classics for their monster mash-up title Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters! Prize was $100 (going to the staff holiday party!) and 5 signed copies of S&S&S. Once received, we’ll have a drawing for 4 of those copies (one to the display-maker – *wink*) at the Eastwood store. Keep your eyes here for details.
