WENDY WELCH PRESENTS HER BOOK LITTLE BOOKSTORE OF BIG STONE GAP


An inspiring true story about losing your place, finding your purpose, and building a community one book at a time. In The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap: A Memoir of Friendship, Community, and the Uncommon Pleasure of a Good Book, Welch and her husband leave their high-octane jobs for a simpler life in an Appalachian coal town as book store owners. The only problems? A declining U.S. economy, a small town with no industry, and the advent of the e-book. Having no idea how to run a bookstore, against all odds, but with optimism, the help of their Virginian mountain community, and an abiding love for books, they succeeded in establishing more than a thriving business - they built a community. This one's for lovers of independent bookstores everywhere!
