Paperback Dreams, The Life and Times of the Independent Bookstore

Through the story of two Bay Area booksellers,
Cody’s and Kepler’s, Paperback Dreams captures
the David and Goliath struggle faced by countless
independents around the country. Paperback
Dreams opens in the heyday of the independent
bookseller, when the availability of great works in
affordable paperbacks sets the stage for bookstores
to become vibrant meeting places for intellectual
growth and activism. The film shifts to present
day, where independent stores now have to
contend with chains and the many big box stores
that sell books as “loss leaders.” Owners and patrons
make a moving case for the relevance and
importance of independent bookstores and book
lovers are reminded that the role of independents
in bringing new ideas to readers remains as essential
as ever.
Discussion to follow the film.
Refreshments will be available.
