FEATURE
The Engine That Pulls Boxcar Books
Local bookshop Boxcar Books, like WFHB, is volunteer-powered and community-based. Because of this they hold benefits and fundraisers throughout the year to keep their shelves stocked. Sometimes they partner up with other projects, like the Midwest Pages to Prisoners Project. Last Tuesday correspondent Casey Kuhn went to Boxcar Books’ latest fundraiser at The Backdoor, to find out what keeps the local shop going for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
