Cross-Country Bookstore Tour

Jenny Milchman, the driving force behind Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day and author of Cover of Snow, which will appear in 2013, took a cross-country tour this summer with her family and visited 60 bookstores. Author Rick Murcer interviewed Milchman about her trip, the stores she visited and more. See Murcer's q&a and the link to photos of many of the stores.

One of our favorite parts: "We also bought books at every single store. My clothing allowance--possibly our kids' college funds--went to funding this trip. But I really believe that if I want a store like Night Heron Books & Coffeehouse in Laramie, Wyo., to exist, for it to be there with a welcoming soul, and a piece of pie, and volumes to pore over, then I have to support it with everything I have."
