Bobby's Picks

Since helping bring a World Series Championship to the Chicago Cubs, Bobby has settled in to head up the shipping and receiving department for the store. When he's not slinging boxes, he's a graphic designer, photographer, and writer. Vonnegut, Rebecca Solnit, George Saunders and Haruki Murakami are some of his favorite reads, but he also delves into current events, natural history, religion, and science. To him, bookstores are essential for building community, learning and sharing ideas, and providing a comfortable place to hang out.
