How do we make space for historically underrepresented folx in bookselling, either as booksellers or as bookstore owners?

Host:  Jhoanna Belfer, Bel Canto Books

Participants: Jhoanna Belfer, Kelly Stromberg

Notes

Reach out to local nonprofits/government/affinity groups to talk to them about bookselling, professional development, job creation programs. 

Reach out to school PTAs to connect directly with schools for literacy fairs and other partnerships.

Look at Neighborhood House in St. Paul, Minnesota to see what kind of programs they are doing.

Offer yourself as a resource/speaker to local schools, libraries, nonprofits as an expert in literary, book curation, book clubs, starting a business
