Mike Gustafson, co-owner of Literati Bookstore in Ann Arbor (Publishers Weekly’s 2019 Bookstore of the Year), discusses his perspective on how an organization or business, through both orthodox and unorthodox ways, can create and cultivate a sense of localism and community. Mike will share a little bit about Literati’s history and background, as well as some of the research, visioning, and values that went into the bookstore opening process. He will also discuss some of Literati’s strategies for helping nurture community, like the public typewriter experiment that became a book, Notes from a Public Typewriter, now a 2019 Michigan Notable book.
