'We're Inviting the Whole Family'

"We're on the cusp of something great with independent bookstores. We're not dying out; we're growing. We're connecting to our immediate communities and the larger world of books in new ways.... My mission as a bookseller and a black, female small-business owner is to enrich communities through strong, independent thinking and to ensure a competitive future in the retail world....

"Every independent bookstore is a reflection of its community and a challenge to that community to continue to grow. We reflect the true range of our communities in Silver Spring and Petworth. Loyalty Bookstores is not just making sure we have a seat at the table; we're inviting the whole family. Please sit down and join us."

--Hannah Oliver Depp, owner of Loyalty Bookstores, Washington, D.C., in the Washington independent Review of Books
