Encino Residents Fight to Save Local Barnes & Noble

Hosted by

Barnes & Noble is one of the big chains that have pushed independent bookstores out of many neighborhoods. But Barnes & Noble tries to be different, with author readings and other events that provide a similar sense of community. It may be hard to escape the irony, but now Barnes & Noble is being pushed out of the San Fernando Valley community of Encino. Recently, a group of angry readers formed Save Our Encino Barnes & Noble.
