Quote of the Week: Sarah Callender

“Bookstores are incubators. Books, music, food, conversation, debate all take place at independent bookstores. As a result bookstores make us more informed, engaged and enlightened. Bookstores provide the venues that will grow our brains and our awareness of the culture and ideas and art of others. Bookstores also incubate readers of books. The world needs more readers of books. So let’s support those warm, well-lighted stores that allow our little chick selves to grow.”

–Sarah Callender, in a Writer Unboxed post headlined “Imagine Saving a Life: An Indie Bookstore Pledge.”
