The owner of The Book Man, Amber Price, will be our guest for this month's fireside chat. We'll discuss balancing being a working mom and volunteering in the community while operating a multi-location retail business. We'll also chat about how Amber has taken over and grown a thriving multi-generational business in an industry that was supposed to be overtaken by the Internet and e-commerce.
