Heritage Resources Distinguished Speakers Chuck and Dee Robinson to present "It Takes a Village Books: Building Community One Book at a Time"

Talks/Lectures, Community Event, Business

Since it opened in 1980, Village Books has grown from a small "mom and pop" store to a two-location enterprise employing fifty people. The store's founders, Chuck and Dee Robinson, will speak about their experiences running a successful, locally-owned bookstore for nearly four decades, during a time of rapid change in the book industry. They will also discuss their decision to leave the historical records of that business to the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies.
