Briars & Brambles Books
Briars & Brambles Books is a dream come true for owner & part-time Windham resident, Jen Schwartz. Jen has combined her love of books, her experience as a long-time library volunteer and past library board president to create an inviting, knowledgeable and professional atmosphere.
Jen’s hand-picked team now includes: a rare-book aficionado, a YA author whose debut book has been incredibly well received, a former teacher with her own line of children's decor and a recent high-school graduate with remarkable curiosity.
The Briars & Brambles team understands that being a bookseller involves so much more than simply “selling books” and is committed to providing unparalleled personal attention.
The Briars & Brambles team takes pride in offering personal suggestions and regularly updates the Staff Picks table in the store.
"For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die."
