W&CF's Plight in Tribune

The Tribune picked up the story of Women & Children First's financial woes. The article reiterates what the Windy City Times reported last week. Co-owner Linda Bubon is quoted in the Tribune story saying, "We both really want the store to keep going. But we really need to get the point across to people: You can't take us for granted. You can't enjoy browsing in here, and buy your books on the Internet. You can't bring your children to Story Hour, and buy your books at Borders."

It's good to see this story getting picked up by other media outlets.
