Your Call: How can we help independent bookstores thrive?
On the April 29th edition of Your Call, we’ll talk about the state of independent booksellers. On Saturday, bookstores from Mendocino to Maine will celebrate Independent Bookstore Day, with special events and unique publications created to mark the day. The Bay Area has seen a resurgence in independent bookstores, with some local chains growing, while others have closed down. How is your favorite independent bookstore changing? It’s Your Call with Hana Baba, and you.
