Tachair Bookshoppe is a welcome addition to the ever-growing area of downtown Jersey City. Aleta Valleau and her mom Carol have been a “market bookstore” for about a year and half, selling used books in farmer’s markets across Jersey City. Aleta says, “we are super excited about finally opening our storefront and being a true-to-life, brick-and-mortar bookstore in Jersey City.”
The bookstore opens its doors, with a cielidh (a traditional Gaelic social gathering, which includes music and dancing) on Tuesday, July 17 from 4pm – 8pm. Mayor Healy will be there for the ribbon cutting and the special guest speaker is Steve Fulop. Fiddler Amy Beshara and guitarist Marian Lawlor will play traditional Celtic music. Activities will include poetry story time, NY Celtic Dancers, light appetizers from O’Connell’s Bar & Grill, Sassy Sweet Treats and more!
