Thanks to former Greensboro resident and author Bill Morris, Scuppernong Books in downtown Greensboro was featured on the Daily Beast today.
Morris, the author of Motor City Burning, wrote an article entitled “Amazon Won’t Kill the Indie Bookstore” about the city’s new independent bookstore and his reading there last week.
As owner Brian Lampkin (pictured center) says in the article, “We’re not going to get rich, but we’re paying people well and giving them a sweet life. It’s great for downtown. Independent bookstores are intellectual centers of a city.”
The article also gives a shout out to the Regulator in Durham, another independent bookstore.
