Jack Goldman on his journalism career and history of his longtime used bookstore, The Bookery

The Bookery has been a beloved local entity in Ithaca for the past 45 years. Located downtown in Dewitt Mall, The Bookery and The Bookery II were opened by Ithaca local Jack Goldman thanks to his love for books and desire to share them with the community. The Bookery shelves have held many unique or hard-to-find books across a wide variety of fields and genres. Soon, the store will close its doors for good. 

WRFI News Director Michayla Savitt recently sat down with founder, Jack Goldman. They spoke about his experiences looking back both on his career as a journalist and used book collector. This segment also aired on our sister program, Your Morning.
