Bookstores – An Inclusive Place for Dialogue and Discovery
In the current environment, customers are increasingly coming to bookstores for connection and communication, as well as for sources of a diverse range of voices and viewpoints.
At the upcoming ABA Spring Forum in Cambridge, in response to member bookstore feedback and requests, ABA will be hosting a conversation led by ABA Board Member Chris Morrow, where booksellers will share ideas and brainstorm about how bookstores can foster communication and create opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds to express and respond to differing views in the welcoming setting of a bookstore.
This will not be a traditional education session. It is designed to be an interactive discussion, where booksellers will be able to participate in open communication and problem solving — in both large and small groups — to clarify strategies for strengthening the unique role that bookstores play in their communities. We urge everyone to stay for this portion of the day. There will be so many lively and useful discussions!
