Brechner's Goals & Gandalf’s Advice

"I want to help increase the stature of independent bookselling in school markets. Secondly, ABA has been hard at work on strengthening our bonds with traditional publishers, a vital undertaking that needs our ongoing attention, to be sure. Finally, bearing in mind Gandalf’s advice that it is our duty 'to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till,' we need to create dynamic outreach that results in building public will and consensus around the principle that antitrust regulation should be reanimated from the cave in which it has been slumbering." 

--Kenny Brechner, newly elected ABA board member and owner of Devaney Doak & Garrett Booksellers in Farmington, Maine, in a q&a with Bookselling This Week
