"On Inauguration Day 2017, Broadway Books gave away copies of We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. This gesture was so well received, the store decided to select a book to give away on this year's Inauguration Day.

After much deliberation, the book the store selected is Wendell Berry's Think Little. This slim collection of two essays (first published fifty years ago and reprinted in 2019 by Counterpoint) is a timeless call-to-action, connecting the personal to the public, the little to the big. In both essays, "Think Little" and "A Native Hill," Berry sows the seeds of responsibility as caretakers of the land, the environment, and the community, addressing the personal integrity of each person's life and urging that people observe, respect, appreciate, and value them." (Promo Copy)
Details: "On Wednesday, January 20th, beginning at 10:30 am Broadway Books will give away copies of Think Little to the first 100 people who come to the store and request a copy. Customers should line up from the door, safely distanced and wearing a mask, down the block to the west, toward 17th Avenue. One book per customer only."
