Two best friends
The love of books
The Road Virus…
We (Em and Sade) are two best friends who, beyond all else, love books. We spent our entire childhoods in bookstores and libraries. Sade is an author, Em is a former librarian.
It has been a lifelong dream of both of ours to own a bookstore. Unfortunately, we live in a location where opening a brick and mortar store just isn’t financially viable for two people to start from scratch.
So, we thought of the next best thing; we decided to purchase an ex-bookmobile and convert it into a full time living space and bookstore, circumventing the need for pricey overhead and rents. The chance to combine the element of running our own bookstore with living in a self-sustainable manner into one cohesive vision is exceptionally rare.
We’ve decided to focus on the underrepresented fringe genres of literature, allowing us to tap into a vein that’s long been ignored.
In specializing in fringe literature, The Road Virus will serve as a venue proving to be an outlier’s dream. No longer will someone with a different worldview need to walk into a bookstore and immediately beeline for the back shelf consisting of one or two rows of books. Instead, amongst our shelves, you will find yourself literally surrounded by words and stories trained on releasing the darker parts of life.
While the focus will be on horror, it will also include:
-underground graphic novels/comics
-underground film/music biographies & histories
and other fringe genres
Also included with this mobile bookstore will be a children/YA section, and community outreach and literacy program. They also have future goals for…
–Delivery service to your door
–Reading events for authors
Em and Sade are about to make a huge change in their lives all for their love of literature and horror!
