Mindy Kuhn, owner of Warren Publishing, is thrilled to announce the launch of her second business. Kuhn, in conjunction with business partner, Shonali Thomas, will be opening Corks, Cooks, & Books, a unique, retail shop and wine bar in the late Spring of this year. “I am so excited to offer our authors a home-base location where they will always be able to sell their books and participate in events,” Kuhn said.
Kuhn and gourmet chef Shonali Thomas of SplenDishes Kitchen are eager to entertain customers with a multi-dimensional infusion of charcuterie boards, snacks, wine and beer, cooking classes, and books. “Since Shonali is a gourmet chef, you know the food will be good, plus she’s from Napa Valley, California—so you know the wine will be well-thought-out!” said Kuhn.
Located in Rock Hill, South Carolina in the Charlotte-metro region, this new space will become home to a variety of cooking and reading associated products. The store will also benefit Warren Publishing authors by hosting an assortment of events including readings, signings, Q&As, and interviews.
“Corks, Cooks, & Books is another way to bring publishing full circle. It’s a great way for me, as a publisher, to get inside the book-buying industry from another angle,” added Kuhn.
“We haven’t forgotten our readers. A great selection of your favorite (and soon-to-be new favorite) titles will be included here. And we understand we’re still living in the age of COVID-19, which is why our outdoor patio is the perfect place to relax and have a drink.”
Corks, Cooks, & Books will be sure to inspire creativity and enjoyment as soon as you walk in the door. Please follow our Facebook page along with that of Corks, Cooks & Books for all of the great news!
