Bookstores and JazzApril

Bookstores are great places to celebrate April as Jazz Month. Many avid readers and book buyers are also jazz fans. If you can't have a concert in your store--like the one shown in the  video below-- why not set up a storefront display of jazz books or invite a jazz author to speak during April?
