Interview With John Doyle At Op-Ed News

Joan Brunwasser of Op-Ed News posted a great interview with John Doyle, sharing his thoughts on the state of independent booksellers in America, the most rewarding aspects of owning a bookstore, and the elements of a successful bookselling team. One of our favorite gems from their conversation is John’s insight that “all of us at Crawford Doyle (as well as at many of our fellow booksellers) consider books about the most precious objects we have in our society. We urge readers to avail themselves fully of the gifts our authors have given us.”
