There’s a new bookstore in Philadelphia!
It’s called Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee and Books and it’s run by Marc Lamont Hill, author of Nobody: Casualties of America’s War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond. You may recognize him from his work as a commentator on CNN; he’s also a professor at Temple University.
Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee and Books is in the Germantown section of Philly.
Just look at those beautifully curated bookshelves!
They’ve already had their first book event: Erica Dunbar Armstrong discussing her book Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave Ona Judge.
Aaand they’ve instituted “Friday Night Films at Uncle Bobbie’s.”
