Off The Beaten Podcast

#22 - Chicago Bookstores

May 1, 2020

Hello Friends!  This episode we’re talking Chicago bookstores! Independent bookstores are my favorite type of Chicago business, and of course I’ve been concerned about their ability to do business throughout this quarantine period, so I’m talking a few of my favorite independent bookstores, and giving you info so that you can support them.  Or, if you’re not in Chicago, definitely support the independent bookstores in your neck of the woods.
