Show Notes

In this episode, I chat with Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer and general manager at the Boulder Book Store in Boulder, Colorado. I asked him about the plethora of local authors, such as Jon Krakauer and Stephen Graham Jones, hiking, books in translation, and Allen Ginsberg’s time in the Boulder community.

Arsen received the 2006 Gordon Saull Award for outstanding bookseller from the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association. Maeve Conran and Arsen Kashkashian host the monthly KGNU-Boulder Book Store Radio Book Club.
