Listen to Booksellers Read Works on Bookselling

The Fleeting Pages reading, Bookstore Clerks Who Write About It, came together even better than I had hoped. The readings (poems, nonfiction, and short story) by booksellers about their experiences working in bookstores were at turns hilarious, insightful, neurotic, nostalgic, and poetic. Bookstores were described as the refuges of the high-minded and the homeless, the avant-garde and the out-moded, and at least two stories were about bookstore thieves. Eight booksellers participated in all, see the full list here. Please enjoy the above video of the readings, made from audio recorded by Will Snook.
