Angeline Boulley "Firekeeper's Daughter" ~ Independent Bookstore Day

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 - "A Native Nancy Drew." That's what author Angeline Boulley always wanted in a young adult thriller. And that's who she created in Daunis Firekeeper, a determined teen who reluctantly joins forces with the FBI to investigate a pervasive meth ring. We visit about Boulley's first novel, Firekeeper's Daughter, which has already been optioned for a Netflix series. ~~~ Saturday is Independent Bookstore Day, so we thought we’d share an essay from Wendy Welch, the author of “The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap: A Memoir of Friendship, Community, and the Uncommon Pleasure of a Good Book.” Her book explores what it means to open an independent bookstore at a time when physical books seem to be disappearing. Allison Quantz reports.
