In honor of our late investor, business advisor, proud promoter, and beloved grandfather, William Weldon Woods (d. 22 April 2009), and his father, Weldon William Woods (d. 16 Jan, 1991), mentor and friend, we will be naming the room containing antiquarian and rare books and books about Iowa "Weldon's Room." Both men farmed at Maple Knoll in Cedar County, Iowa, which has been in the family for over 150 years, and both encouraged Nialle in her education; Bill Woods was enormously supportive of Nialle's purchase and management of the Haunted Bookshop, and we guess he understood that while Nialle is inept at growing even cherry tomatoes, the seeds of curiosity and literacy, well tended, can fruit as bountifully as a field of good Iowan earth.
