'Passionately Engaged' Younger Booksellers at Fall Shows

"Since I last wrote to you, I’ve had the good fortune of attending two fall regional trade shows--my own region (PNBA) last week and the SIBA show last month.... At both shows I was extremely impressed with the number of younger booksellers (well, at least younger than me) who were passionately engaged in the topics of the conference and in finding collaborative ways to make their businesses better.... What I saw in all these interactions were people who grew up in a completely different bookselling and retail landscape than I did, and, yet, who are just as enthused and motivated as any booksellers I’ve known about what our stores can represent and achieve in each of our communities."
