Hurricane Harvey was the strongest storm to make landfall in the United States since Charley in 2004. On a very special episode of Just the Right Book Podcast, we speak to two independent bookstores in Houston impacted by the storm.
McKenna Jordan from Murder By The Book and Benjamin Rybeck from Brazos Bookstore tell Roxanne how they are recovering and lending aid in the after-math of Harvey. "They need to come in and get that semblance of normalcy...come to their favorite bookstore and get a new book to read as a distraction," says McKenna of her customers.
