Alexander Schneider and Christina Ross-Schneider: A Novel Idea
Show Notes

In this episode of the Bookshop Podcast, I'm chatting with Alexander Schneider and Christina Rosso-Schneider, from A Novel Idea on Passyunk, Philadelphia, about cultivating community, the Passyunk neighborhood, their "forever moment' in the bookshop, and the fascinating events and classes they offer in=person and on-line.

A Novel Idea on Passyunk is a community-minded bookstore and event space in East Passyunk, Philadelphia. Alexander Schneider and Christina Rosso-Schneider make up the two halves of A Novel Idea--Alexander brings over a decade of graphic design experience to the shop, and Christina, as a writer and open mic host, with her experience and dedication to literary events in support of Philadelphia artists. Their goal is to cultivate community and create and foster a space of diversity and inclusivity while helping customers fall in love with books, either for the first time or the millionth!
