True story: The Bronx has no bookstores. Seriously none. Barnes & Noble closed the last one back in October, according to The New Yorker.
Today, I supported this Indiegogo project to open an independent bookstore in the borough. This isn’t a charity shop. Independent bookstore sales grew 10% last year. They are viable businesses and important community hubs. And the Bronx should have one.
Plus, you have to watch the founder, Noelle Santos, pitch on her video. It’s worth it.
