Ann Patchett, author of State of Wonder and Bel Canto, just opened an independent book store in Nashville. An author who is going to see what it's like from the other side...but I bet she won't have any trouble getting any guest speakers. Which makes me wonder who that side of things will change her view of what she does.

Little book stores can't often get big name speakers...mainly because we can't pay them, but often they are too out of the way, too small, etc.
