Chapter 4: Sarah Ramsey on beating book blame with brilliant bookselling

Welcome to the first chapter of 3 Books recorded live in an open bookstore! Book City is in the heart of Toronto's beautiful Bloor West Village neighborhood and that's where I settled into the children's section to talk blame, beauty, and growth with my favorite bookseller in the world -- the one and only Sarah Ramsey. I love Sarah because she takes the art of bookselling seriously and seemingly reads people’s minds to find the exact book they need to help them grow. As we always say: Humans are the best algorithm. Listen in to hear us touch on themes of beauty, loss, and honoring ones we love... What you'll learn: What makes a great bookseller? Who owns grief after loss?  How do you honor a life through storytelling? What Judy Blume book is the first to appear on 3 Books? What is one of the funniest stories I’ve ever heard involving marital guilt, shame, and Kindles? Why are humans the best algorithms? How can books transcend generations? What memoir helped invent the category -- and have we "over-memoired" ourselves? Why can you judge a book by its cover? Leave us a voicemail!
