Queens still reads
A group of women from Queens are making an active effort to keep bookshops alive in the borough.
In the beginning of January, Barnes and Nobles closed their locations in Bayside, Fresh Meadows and Forest Hills. Now, Natalie Noboa, 23, of Forest Hills, has teamed up with a few of her friends to start the Queens Bookshop initiative, dedicated to bringing bookstores back to the borough.
Noboa and her friends passed out flyers to spread the word about getting another bookstore opened in the area. They are also relying heavily on social media to spread the word.
