The Art of Bookselling #2: Mary Williams of Skylight Books

"Books are windows into other peoples' lives."

You can find a transcript of this podcast here.

Since it opened in 1996, Skylight Books has become a fixture in the Los Feliz and a center of the neighborhood’s literary community by hosting readings, book clubs, and launch parties. In the second installment of our “Art of Bookselling” podcast series, Air/Light‘s Claire Robertson talks to Mary Williams, the general manager of Skylight. Mary tells us about her favorite book of the year, comfort book buying in the run-up to the first lockdown, and how their customers are helping support the store throughout the pandemic.

And remember: after you’ve listened, visit Skylight (or your own local bookshop) in person or online and buy a book or two.

If you missed it, be sure to check out the first episode in the “Art of Bookselling” featuring Josh Spencer of Los Angeles’ The Last Bookstore.
