“I have been to one million independent bookstores. I have met the booksellers who founded them and own them. I have fallen in love with them. Zero jerks own independent bookstores. They just don’t. They are—always—people who believe in and deeply invest in communities and art and ideas. And during this pandemic, in which we have lost one local indie per week, we need to prioritize investing in these local businesses who invest so much in us.”
