The move is a homecoming of sorts for Nancy Traversy, chief executive of Barefoot Books, the company she co founded in 1993 to publish multicultural children’s books. She lives in Concord, and her four children attend school there. She wants to create an inviting space for families. (The Bedford Farms ice cream stand across the street is an additional draw.) “Concord is a good Barefoot community,” she said. “It’s obviously very literate and environmentally aware.”The shop at 89 Thoreau St., across from the train depot, will host storytellers and family concerts Friday through Sunday as part of its grand opening.
