I first heard of Ken Sanders Rare Books just this year when the Salt Lake Tribune ran an article on the situation with the economic redevelopment of the block on which his shop is located. I was immediately interested. Not many months ago, another bookstore, a coffee shop and a beloved local theatre (among others) got the boot out of a downtown space. After reading the article, I knew I wanted to interview Ken. What I didn’t expect was how much I was going to relate to the interests, ideas, and passions of a man decades older than myself, and how much I was going to resonate with his situation.
