Independent Booksellers Grow in Number and Diversity

From an AP story by Hillel Italie headlined “Independent booksellers grew in number, diversity in 2021”:

Laura Romani, a Chicago-area resident with a background in education and library science, had been thinking of a new career.

“I was at home a couple of years ago reflecting on all the experience I gained and how I wanted to contribute to the Latino community, while also allowing myself to be on my own and make use of my love for books and passion for multilingualism,” she says.
