May 2—today—is Independent Bookstore Day. Visit your favorite bookstore and buy a book or two. Local bookstores are key to a cultured, vibrant, and rewarding community.
For some local history, check out this great blog post on the legendary and vanished Book Row in Manhattan published by the Museum of the City of New York.
It’s best not to imagine a world without bookstores. Just consult the dearly departed Ray Bradbury. Please buy a book today.
