Beam, Gladwell, Zinn and Jessica Lange: Shop, look and listen

This great Boston Globe list of people reading in town this week goes on. (Lange would be actor Jessica Lange, who has a book of photos.)

Buy a present for someone while you’re at it. If you can’t do it in person, support your local bookstore online. Here’s the list I give my students:

Harvard Book Store
My favorite, Harvard Square. No affiliation to the school by the same name. Harvard has its own -- The Coop.

Brookline Booksmith
Another good one, Coolidge Corner stop on BC Green Line. Claims to have put the Barnes and Noble down the street out of business.

Powell's Books
Where I go to mail order.

A Nubian Notion

Roxbury African-American book store and more.

Schoenhof's Foreign Books
Books in many languages. This web site goes to their supplier but they are at 76a Mt. Auburn St. in Harvard Square.
