Q&A with CTS Bookstore Manager Nick Buck

Visitors to the CTS Bookstore may recognize a familiar face behind the counter. Nick Buck previously worked part-time in the bookstore before becoming its Manager. He is also a CTS student pursuing a masters in theological studies. Below, Nick shares some of his thoughts on the store, books and learning:

What attracted you to working in the CTS Bookstore?

I love all kinds of books – fiction, history, political science, theology – and I also enjoy sharing the gift of reading. After earning my B.S. in education at Indiana University, I taught history and sociology in a public high school. I also worked as an adult education/GED teacher for Fathers and Families. The CTS Bookstore is a great venue to explore all of these interests.

Can you recommend some good books from the CTS Bookstore?

Our bookstore blog (http://ctsbooks.wordpress.com/) features new releases by faculty as well as external authors, and provides information on interesting programs such as the Charles Dickens reading group at CTS.

What plans do you have for the future?

There is immense potential for the bookstore to serve as a hub for book discussions, conversation and community gathering. Books have tremendous power to bring people together.
