Our Story

Burgundy Books has been in existence since 2005.  It is a work of art continually seeking new ideas for presenting literature to readers.  

The Bookseller

The owner attended Uconn, Upenn, Temple University and Yale.  She also served as an associate manager at the Yale School of Management.  In her youth, she competed in oratorical contests, was a member of the National Honor Society, and has had opinion pieces published in the New York Times.  It is her insatiable desire for knowledge that fuels her passion for bookselling.


The Late Frank McCourt

We dedicate our author Visits to the late Frank McCourt.  He was our first book signing event author and his presentation was life changing.  He performed two events back to back.  During these events he sang and rapped.  We miss him and the Irish twinkle in his eyes.
