Quote of the Day

Bookstores 'More Needed than Ever'

"The twin pillars of independent bookstores are browsing and community.... Bookstores--places that nurture learning and discussion, champion diverse voices and ideas, celebrate language, treasure knowledge and connect the past with our chaotic present to show us how we might go forward--are more needed than ever. We must do everything we can to support them now, before it is too late because they are hubs of building what Martin Luther King Jr. called the Beloved Community, centered on justice, equality and love."

--Adam Stern, bookseller at the Seminary Co-op, Chicago, Ill., in an op-ed published by the Chicago Tribune
