Yankee Bookstore on SPARK

Kari Meutsch and Kristian Preylowski, owners of the Yankee Bookshop in Woodstock, VT, discuss how they are shaping the historic bookstore into a reflection of the Upper Valley community, a window to the world at large, and a community building institution. And of course, about their favorite books, the value of the written word, and how booksellers make the world a better place.
