Many thanks to Megan Doherty, Jasmine Kwong and Jeff Deutsch for joining us on February 20 for a discussion of If You Weren’t Looking For It, of the Seminary Coop Bookstore and Hyde Park booksellers. If anyone has stories they want to share with the group about former Hyde Park booksellers, send them on. I have attached the photo of Megan and Jasmine receiving their award at the Historical Society Annual Dinner on February 25.
