Donate to Open Books

Time Out Chicago talks to Stacy Ratner and Becca Keaty, who are planning to open a new bookstore in the South Loop in 2008. But Open Books won't be just any indie bookstore. It will be the city's first nonprofit bookstore, with proceeds funding a literacy program for Chicago adults in need. They are currently soliciting donations. Visit the Open Books website for information on how to get involved.
