UNSUITABLE Series

The founders of Dog-Eared Books met while getting their Bachelor's degrees in Biology, of all things. Caitlynne, a shy, reticent person, picked an empty table in Genetics lab. Stephanie, gregarious and outgoing, picked the same table, began talking, and the two have been fast friends ever since. Stephanie and Caitlynne will share the story of their journey from school to bookstores, how they created a mission to ensure that every person who wants to read has the ability to do so, and what they've learned about the big business of bookselling along the way.
