Square Books at BEA

Square Books owner Richard Howorth (third from left in back) and Cody Morrison (front row, left) bookstore buyer, pose at BookExpo America in New York City this week. 
Booksellers and Coffee House Press staff gathered to promote a book in which they all played a part: Read This! Handpicked Favorites from America's Indie Bookstores, edited with a preface by Hans Weyandt and introduced by Ann Patchett. An ode to the art of traditional bookselling and independent bookstores, the book is a collection of top 50 lists from 25 booksellers around the country along with anecdotes and interviews about the life of being a bookseller, reader and engaged citizen.
