A Bookstore’s Birthday

One of my favorite independent bookstores, A Novel Idea on Passyunk, 1726 East Passyunk Avenue ( https://anovelideaphilly.com/ ), is celebrating its first anniversary in business. There has been a great resurgence in independent bookstores in this country, and that’s great-Amazon and the big box stores, like Barnes and Noble, can’t do it all. These little bookstores are the places where up and coming writers and poets display their material , and the book-buying public connect with them. I urge you to support you locally-based bookstores, authors, poets, and publishers, they are the front line of the written arts in this country.
