On the Dot Books & More

There is a new bookstore in town and it is actually located in the middle of a farmer's market. At the beginning of the summer, Yooree Losordo launched a new "pop-up" book store called "On the Dot Books," which is located every Friday at one of the Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmer's Market booths. On the Dot currently carries primarily food-related texts to match the fresh produce of the farmer's market. Losordo's goal is to have a "brick and mortar" bookstore with a wide array of titles open in Dorchester sometime in 2015. As Losordo works toward launching a permanent location, she is currently planning an author's night, as well as an educators night to begin connecting to area book-lovers. We are hoping On the Dot Books is a success and would love to see down the road a independent bookstore in our neighborhood.
