No one is exactly finding themselves in charted territory these days.

But life seems especially weird for bookstore owners, who pitch their community-building features so passionately in normal times but who because of that must close … all the while the public is even more eager to consume in-home entertainment.

Novelist Ann Patchett is experiencing this situation from all angles, as both a writer and a bookstore owner (Parnassus Books in Nashville, Tennessee, is currently mailing orders only, even within town).

She describes her experience and shares words of encouragement in a guest column for the Guardian.
