The Gayborhood’s Historic Giovanni’s Room Is For Sale

Ed Hermance, owner of the pathbreaking LGBT bookstore Giovanni’s Room, is looking to make a change, reports WHYY’s Elizabeth Fiedler.

“I’m hoping to sell the store,” Hermance told her. “I’ve been looking for a partner, a successor for 25 years, and I think I’ve come close several times but it’s never actually happened.”

Hermance says he’s open to proposals from people who’d like to buy the store.
