'Good Bookstores Are the Bastions of Truth'

"Though we may not always agree, we always engage and provide a space for them to talk.... In time of political turmoil people often look to their local independent bookshop as a place of solace, just as they might a close friend.... We have observed customers connecting with each other after picking up the same political title. Good bookstores are the bastions of truth, offering books that can enlighten and inform, offering diverse and well-rounded perspectives."

--Rachel Eadie of Scorpio Books, Christchurch, New Zealand, quoted in a Booksellers NZ piece headlined "Bookstores as Political Spaces"
