Ashley Brooks And Sonja Overhiser Talk Indy Women In Food
“I don’t even blame some of the bro-ey chefs in town. I just feel like they don’t know any better. But they need to know better. Let’s all get on the same page.”
It was a busy day for Indy Reads Books; the new store had just opened this morning, and by 5 p.m., it was hosting a rare local reading by Indy author John Green. He spoke to readers and answered questions with his signature energy and wit, and afterward hundreds of readers waited patiently for a chance to speak with the author while he signed their books (and, in one case, a hat). After the marathon session, Green found time to talk with us.
Three years of work came to fruition today for Indy Reads with the 11 a.m. opening of its new bookstore on Mass Ave. A modest crowd filled the beautifully designed interior of the spot to take a look at the first bookstore to grace downtown since Borders left last year.
