Mount Pleasant On The Move
Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page will join us to discuss her city, Mount Pleasant, and to talk about the role of women in politics.
Independent Book Sellers
Jonathan Sanchez, owner of Blue Bicycle Books, will discuss his history with Blue Bicycle Books, and the ways the store has adapted to thrive in recent years. He will discuss the origins of YALLFest, and how it grew into the nation’s top young adult book festival, plus the work his staff does with young people and writing. Blue Bicycle Books has also found a way to express its own identity and brand, both through selling thousand-dollar rare books, to creative events, to finding more and more growth in new books in a time when print is supposedly dead.
