Anime Classics Zettai! in New York Times article on new Kinokuniya Bookstore

In a New York Times article today about the stunning new three-story Bryant Park Kinokuniya Bookstore, Motoko Rich quotes Shigeharu Ono, director of Kinokuniya in New York, who says that English-language titles will likely be in the majority at the new location: "At the old store the main purpose was to sell to the Japanese community....We want to expand our audience." Rich notes that Stone Bridge's own Brian Camp, co-author of Anime Classics Zettai!, will be presenting at the new store in November.

There are three November events with Stone Bridge authors at the new Kinokuniya! Here are the details:
