Books to Engage and Enlighten

Then & Now


Books of Aurora,Inc. is a business run by Rita Williams, who entered the bookselling world in 1978. After operating an open shop for over 20 years (The Inside Story in Bainbridge for most of that time), I now sell on the internet, at book fairs, at teacher conferences, and at The Secret Garden, 196 S. Chillicothe Rd., Aurora, OH. You can reach me by phone 330-995-3228 or e-mail [email protected]
