On December 12, 2022, New York Book Forum presented “Opening a Bookstore”—The How-To Guide for Design, Market Outreach, and Success—our very first in-person program! Thanks to all who descended on P&T Knitwear in lower Manhattan this past Monday evening: a brisk cocktail hour was followed closely by a lively, illuminating discussion which in turn was followed by a flurry of last-minute book purchases.*
LAUREN WHITE-JACKSON (our program director) was joined in conversation by JOSEPH DEMES, events and outreach manager; SERGE RODRIGUEZ, floor supervisor and podcast studio coordinator; and JULIE WERNERSBACH, general manager and book buyer.
