Host Gerald Everett Jones and his co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Thomas Page discuss “The Return of the Independent Bookstore” with special guest Jack Leidner, past proprietor of Clemens & Company bookstore in Newman, Georgia. Are the indie bookstores, in fact, making a comeback? Jack responds to our questions, including:

  1. If I told you I planned to open a new indie bookstore, what advice would you give me?
  2. What types of books did your customers want?
  3. The Borders bookstore chain was built on a new approach to computerized inventory. Do you think that was a good idea?
  4. What about events? Poetry, book signings, concerts, even community events like clubs and grass-roots politics. Should a bookstore promote those?
  5. Should an author plan to do bookstore signings and readings? Are those relevant anymore?
  6. Do you have an opinion about Amazon’s plans to open retail bookstores that have automated cashier stations?
  7. What’s your next business venture?

Host Gerald Everett Jones and his co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Thomas Page discuss “Mystery and True Crime” with special guest author Marvin J. Wolf. Wolf is the author of the Rabbi Ben mysteries: For Whom the Shofar Blows, A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn, and the forthcoming A Tale of Two Rabbis. Marv responds to our questions, including:

  1. How does mystery fiction differ from true crime?
  2. What is a police procedural? Do all mysteries fall into that category?
  3. Have you ever come across a story that you thought was too painful or too troubling to write?
  4. How does the training and skillset of a journalist inform the work of a mystery novelist?
  5. Is it a truism that social media is killing journalism these days?
  6. A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn is full of Judaic scholarship. Did you just absorb all that detail over the years, or was it a research project in itself?
