Show Notes

Green Apple Books in San Francisco has provided old and new books to the local community for fifty-one years. I caught up with co-owner Pete Mulvihill to find out what makes Green Apple Books somewhat of an institution in Northern California and how they look after their employees, who, in return, provide outstanding service as booksellers and store managers.  

 Pete and I chat about the history of Green Apple Books, the UFCW local five unions, and he has an excellent answer to the question, "what is the key ingredient to a thriving independent bookshop?"
