Tattered Cover Pilloried

Tattered Cover, a Colorado institution as Denver’s most-successful independent bookstore, affirmed that “Black Lives Matter” and pledged to carry and host “a wider diversity of books” and author events. But, the store’s owners said, they weren’t keen on taking an active role in public debate. That’s a perfectly reasonable stance for bookstore owners. For that statement, of course, the owners were pilloried. So, of course, the owners issued a groveling apology. I’m sure others will draw the obvious lesson that it’s better simply to shut the hell up and keep your head down.
