This week LambdaLiterary.org editor, Karen Schechner profiled Giovanni’s Room, the oldest gay and lesbian bookstore in the country, for Bookselling This Week. When the Philadelphia bookstore asked customers for help with a large-scale renovation, the response was overwhelming. Authors Edmund White and Christopher Rice also participated in benefit events.
“Thirty years later we had that same kind of amazing energy with people coming forward and raising money to pay for the wall,” says bookstore owner Ed Hermance. “We don’t have that kind of money. I think it’s fabulous that the community is still working hard to let us continue.” [ Via Shelf Awareness]
