Dragon Week 2013

Here at Brazos Bookstore, we love dragons of all shapes and sizes, so we’ve decided to give these much-maligned creatures their very own DRAGON WEEK! From March 9th-16th, dragon lovers of all ages are welcome to come share in the celebration of our fire-breathing friends by participating in any of our events below. If you can’t make it to the events, stop by and check out our featured dragon display.

BONUS! Anyone who comes into the store dressed as your favorite dragon (or knight or princess or dragon-loving-donkey...) will receive 10% off their entire purchase.
