Everyone has a story that should be heard. I'm here to collect.

Lesley Rains // East End Book Exchange

Lesley Rains is the woman behind East End Book Exchange on Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield. Before that, Lesley's love of books and the lack of bookstores in the city drove her to start something new. The exchange started as bookstalls at community public markets around the city.  In this chat, Lesley discusses her journey of opening her own business, her favorite books, and the need for diversity in the book market.
