Your Call: How are independent bookstores surviving and thriving?
On the next Your Call we’ll celebrate California Bookstore Day by talking the owners of Green Apple Books, Walden Pond Books, and Bookshop Santa Cruz. Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. What is your favorite bookstore and why? What does your bookstore add to your community? And what do we lose when independent book sellers disappear? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.
