Be sure to check out LA Weekly‘s article on Los Angeles’ independent bookstore scene. It features a terrific interview with our head buyer, Marie du Vaure. (Our only regret is that the rest of our amazing book buying staff wasn’t mentioned — Sherri Gallentine, who works with Marie to buy adult titles; Kris Vreeland, our children’s book buyer and kid’s department manager; and Steve “Mr. Steve” Ross, sale book buyer extraordinaire!) In related news, last Friday’s LAist admits their own summer reading article was “scooped” by LA Weekly but gives Vroman’s as well as a number of other great L.A. independents a shout out.
