"Trolleys, Tales & Talk" Feb. 9, 2010

"Something Magical About a Bookstore!" Dan Clark's guests are Sharon and Tom Savage, co-owners of Muscatine Books & More—and sponsors of this show "from the git-go." Eight years ago they opened their independent bookstore in the recently restored Silberhorn Building at 124 E. 2nd St. "It just looks like a bookstore you'd find in a movie," Sharon said at the time. "It's in the center of the downtown area where the history lives and they put up flags." Now the store is for sale, as Sharon has announced in a newspaper column: "This store has been a wonderful adventure that my husband and I have enjoyed beyond description. There is something magical about a book store." And then she says: "We would like to sell it to people who have energy and motivation. We need people who have a vision for the future of small downtowns and who want to participate in creating and nurturing the downtown climate of the future."
