Book Barn of the Finger Lakes


At the Book Barn of the Finger Lakes, the art of independent bookselling is alive and well. Owner and architect Vladimir Dragan shares his experiences culling America’s published literature to find and make available those works often overlooked or long forgotten. We learn what trends he has seen come and go, what makes a novel great, why lesser known authors should get more attention and how he is preserving the depth of American literature when libraries don’t have the room.
