Portrait of Eve Bookstore Champion

Eve L. Ewing

We’re excited to feature Eve L. Ewing as a Bookstore Champion! A writer, scholar, and cultural organizer, Eve uses her platform to advocate for local businesses and independent bookstores. She’s curated bookstore windows, considered collaborating with a bookstore on a book-mobile, and urged followers to support their bookstores throughout the pandemic. Bookstore Champions receive a year’s supply of audiobooks, gear, and are celebrated for their advocacy across channels.
