It’s no surprise that so many IPOs are oversubscribed. But are they really good investments?

Getting everyone on the same page: Linden Tree Books' search for a new chapter

Linden Tree Books is in danger of closing unless an acceptable buyer can be identified. Co-owners Dianne Edmonds and Jill Curcio organized two information and Q&A sessions, including one today, to discuss options that could prevent a permanent shutdown.

Linden Tree Books co-owners Dianne Edmonds and Jill Curcio have been working to sell their shop for approximately a year, with a focus on finding a buyer committed to preserving the atmosphere that has attracted area residents of all ages for more than 40 years.

Edmonds and Curcio placed an advertisement in the May 8 Town Crier with an intriguing banner: “What is the next chapter for Linden Tree Books and what does it look like?” These are questions the business partners have been asking themselves since early 2018.
