I was just on my way to Raleigh this morning, among other errands also heading to Quail Ridge Books to pick up a book there, when I heard Nancy Olson’s interview on NPR’s The State Of Things. Very nice interview with the owner of my favourite bookstore! I drove slowly in order to hear the whole thing:
When Nancy Olson opened a small bookstore back in 1984, she wanted it to be more than just a place to find bestsellers. Today, Quail Ridge Books and Music is a community anchor, an incubator for Raleigh’s creative class and a dream come true. Nancy joins host Frank Stasio to share stories from her many years of selling books and meeting authors.
