Beachwood Meeting Room (Auditorium) (84)

Join us when author Danny Caine visits to discuss his new book, How to Protect Bookstores and Why.

About the author:

Danny Caine is the author of the book How to Resist Amazon and Why, as well as the poetry collections Continental BreakfastEl Dorado Freddy’s, and Flavortown. One of the owners of the Raven Book Store in Lawrence, Kansas, he was named Midwest Bookseller of the Year in 2019 and Raven Book Store was Publishers Weekly's Bookstore of the Year in 2022. 

How to Protect Bookstores and Why asks, can bookstores save the world? As bastions of culture, anchors of local retail districts, community gathering places, and sources of new ideas, inspiration, and delight, maybe they can. But only if we protect them and the critical roles they fill in our communities.

Caine makes a compelling case for the power of small, local businesses in this thoughtful examination of the dynamic world of bookstores. At once an urgent call to action and a celebration of everything bookstores can do, Caine's new book features case-study profiles of a dozen of the most interesting and innovative bookstores of today, from Minneapolis to Paris. Through a well-informed analysis of these case studies, Caine offers actionable strategies to promote a sustainable future for bookselling, including policy suggestions, ideas for community-based action, and tips on what consumers can do to help. A captivating read for any lover of books, patron of bookstores, or champion of the survival of these vital institutions, How to Protect Bookstores and Why makes the strongest possible argument for the importance of a resilient, inclusive, and progressive bookstore landscape.
 

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.

About the branch

The Beachwood Branch first opened to the public on October 31, 1982. At the time, it was the first branch in the CCPL system to have an automated circulation system. Located just a few hundred yards from the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, the branch offers a drive-up window where customers can pick up requested materials, dedicated spaces for kids and teens, and a beautiful outdoor reading garden.
