Percy's Burrow Receives Grant from Author James Patterson

February 21, 2014

"Prolific author James Patterson, whose books have sold nearly 260 million copies, included Percy’s Burrow in Topsham as one of the 54 independent bookstores to receive money in the first wave of his headline-grabbing $1 million giveaway.

Percy’s Burrow was one of 11 New England stores chosen, but reportedly the only one in Maine. Patterson is distributing more than $260,000 in the first batch of grant awards and will reportedly give out almost $750,000 more over the course of the rest of the year.

Jessica St. Pierre, assistant manager at Percy’s Burrow, which is located in the Topsham Fair Mall, said the store’s employees “have a few ideas” about what to do with the $2,500 they’ve been awarded, but they haven’t had a chance to make any final decisions as a staff."
