Learn how Changing Hands have sustained business despite the advent of e-books

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/ .
