In this episode, I'm chatting with Rachel Person, events manager at Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Northshire Bookstore has two locations, Manchester, Vermont, and Saratoga Springs, New York. They were founded in 1976 by Edward and Barbara Morrow, who recently sold to Clark and Lu French, also of Manchester.

She spent six years curating and producing literary programming at Symphony Space in New York City, and served as Associate Director of the series Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story, heard nationwide on public radio. In Saratoga Springs, Rachel served in the Community Relations Office at Skidmore College, where she acted as Art Partner Liaison for SaratogaArtsFest. She is on the Executive Board of Saratoga Reads and the Board of Directors of the Adirondack Center for Writing.
