Sarah McNally, Bookseller

New Books Network 2020

Sarah McNally is the founder and owner of three windows into the world of letters in New York City: the McNally bookstores, renowned not only in NYC but around the country and world for independent, well-curated, smart bookselling. We spoke with Sarah during the lockdown of New York City to find out what she cares about and values, and also to speak with one of our personal heroines: someone who comes from a family of booksellers and keeps the great tradition of independent bookstores alive today.
