Our March guests were Eileen Bobek and Marcella Bell of Rebel Heart Books in Jacksonville, Oregon. Since 2017, Rebel Heart Books has been an important presence in Jacksonville. As they state on the bookstore's website: "Independent bookstores are not just physical spaces to house books. They anchor communities. They house real people and ideas, stories of love and hope, pain and loss, failure and redemption and any emotion and circumstance that can be imagined or experienced. Their fuel is a belief in the written word. They take care of people." In this interview, they tell us how the bookstore grew from an idea to reality, how they choose books and the role an independent bookstore plays in a small community.
