In the most recent podcast episode, we caught up with Doloris Vest, proprietor of Book No Further, the independent book store on Roanoke’s historic city market to get a glimpse behind the scenes. She talks about the area reading community, the strength of local authors, the support of Southern Independent Booksellers Association, and most recently what she’s doing to keep the cash register ringing amidst the COVID-19 shut down.
Doloris opened Book No Further in the fall of 2017.
