The Dakota Winters | Tom Barbash


In the fall of 1979, Anton Winter returns from the Peace Corp to find that his father—late night television star Buddy Winter, has suffered a nervous breakdown and lost his gig. Anton has lost his footing and begins by seeking out the friendship of his upstairs neighbor, John Lennon, and by breaking out of the family nest to find himself. 

Georgette Coan is the manager of Barbara's Bookstore at Woodfield Mall in Schaumberg, IL. She began working for Barbara's in 2010 and was the manager at Barbara's in Burr Ridge, IL. Georgette believes that people still buy paper books because they long for the feel of a physical volume in their hands, actual books on their bookshelves at home, a way to have an actual library (you can't wrap an E-reader!) to pass onto their families. "Books harken back to a more nostalgic era. This new technology isn't for everyone; physical copies of books still offer another choice to those who don't care for the newfangled technology known as E-books and E-readers."
