Do we need bookstores in the 21st century? And if so, what makes a good one? With In Praise of Good Bookstores, Jeff Deutsch – director of Chicago’s Seminary Co-op Bookstores, one of the finest bookstores in the world – offers an eloquent and charming reflection on such entities. It is both a loving homage and an urgent account of why they are essential community places of discovery, refuge, and fulfillment. Joining is Robert Martin, founder of TheIndependantBookseller.com; authors Hernan Diaz, Tananarive Due; and moderator Pamela Paul, editor of The New York Times Book Review.
