Bank of Books in Malibu will celebrate its grand opening starting this week with 10 days full of special events.
The week-long celebration begins Friday, Nov. 2 and runs through Nov. 11, according to Clarey Rudd, the store's owner.
"We have about 25 different authors come over those 10 days, also artists, and musicians," Rudd said.
The store is newly stocked every week and features an eclectic sampling of books, including new, used, rare and collectible. The store shares a suite with Cafecito Organico, offering a cozy place to drink coffee and curl up with a book.
