Western Book Reps honours Jim Munro, Mel Bolen with charitable donations

In 2016, British Columbia lost two venerable booksellers, Jim Munro of Munro Books and Mel Bolen of Bolen Books. To honour their memory, the Western Book Reps Association is donating $500 to a charity of each store’s choosing.

The WBRP is hoping well-wishers will match its contribution. To donate, contact Jennifer Fyffe at (778) 847-3511 or jfyffe@penguinrandomhouse.com.

The donations will be presented at the WBRP’s book fair on Feb. 12.
