About the Show

A great bookstore makes a neighborhood special, and Mitchell Kaplan has been running one such bookstore for 25 years. It is Miami's Books & Books, and on the occasion of its 25th anniversary we staged a live discussion with Mitchell and the author of The Hometown Advantage, Stacy Mitchell. Mitchell is a co-founder of Miami Book Fair International and serves as the Chairperson of its Board of Directors. Stacy is a senior researcher with the New Rules Project, a program of the nonprofit Institute for Local Self-Reliance. She has advised numerous communities on how to strengthen locally owned businesses.

And we'll talk with Greg Robeson about culinary tourism in Oregon. Greg is manager of Oregon Bounty and president of Robeson Communications.
