Changing Hands is Arizona’s leading independent bookstore, offering new and used books, unique gifts, toys, and more than 300 author events every year. In Tempe since 1974, Changing Hands opened a second location in 2014 in Central Phoenix, home to an innovative adaptive reuse project that re-purposed the iconic Beef Eaters restaurant. We will sit down with the owners to find out how they built a community bookstore and how they have been able to sustain it despite the advent of e-books. We also will talk to a local author about the importance of getting recognized by Changing Hands and the difference they make in getting them noticed. Learn more at https://www.changinghands.com/
