Byron and Beth Borger, owners of Hearts & Minds Bookstore in Dallastown, PA, have been the Official Booksellers of the Jubilee Conference for many years. Recently, they celebrated the 30th anniversary of opening their store, and they were recognized at Jubilee with a production number from the musical Les Miserables, based on the book of the same name by Victor Hugo, the first title Hearts & Minds sold three decades ago.
“This annual CCO conference is the highlight of our year (sorry, all you others who have graciously hosted us at your events but, well, it’s hard to top Jubilee),” writes Byron. “Beth and I have been selling books there for decades, and I helped run the thing years ago. I have written at length about its significance here, here, or here. If you are unfamiliar with our partnership with the CCO, or wonder what makes us tick, do read those reports.”
