“This is a crucial moment in history. As the pandemic subsides and we return to the social spaces that bring us together, we will decide whether we want to be commoditized or recognized as individuals. Independent businesses all across the country add diversity, character, and humanity to our communities and they need our support. Without them, we’re just another brown box.” —American Booksellers Association president Allison Hill



From "Local booksellers push back against Amazon with #BoxedOut campaignThe Boston Globe, October 16, 2020

"Allison Hill, CEO of the American Booksellers Association, a nonprofit organization for retailers that created the program, said this year’s pushback against Prime Day is especially important.... 'COVID would be the cause of death [for these bookstores],' Hill explained. 'But Amazon would be the pre-existing condition. … The world is a little bit under Amazon’s trance. We look out our windows, and I can see porches down my street with Amazon boxes sitting on them. Those boxes have become a norm that we expect, and I think it’s time to connect the dots between them and the impact on our communities.'”
