WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST by Sally Benson | Kirkus ReviewsThe two new owners of the bookstore are Lynn Mooney and Sarah Hollenbeck, both of whom were previously employees at the store. Hollenbeck, who started working at WCF in September, is a frontline bookseller. A writer, she teaches at Story Studio Chicago, a writing center. Christophersen, a former American Booksellers Association board president , will officially retire from bookselling on August 6; Bubon will stay on staff on a part-time basis for the next two years. The other employees there are nine, including the two exiting owners and the incoming owners will remain on staff as well. Christophersen, 65, and Bubon, 63, told PW at Heartland Fall Forum last October that they were ready to retire, and were eager to pass on the store, which has become a literary icon in Chicago, to new owners. The one thing Christophersen and Bubon did not want changed is the store's identification as a feminist bookstore.
