Join the Rock Bottom Remainders in their support of booksellers! They are doing so with the release of a music video to support BINC — the Book Industry Charitable Foundation. The pandemic has impacted bookstores and their staff and the Rock Bottom Remainders, who typically do benefit concerts to support literacy and book related causes want to support bookstores and booksellers.
The song is their version of “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King with lyrics adapted by Dave Barry and members of the band and guests participating in the video.
“The Remainders, like all authors, love independent bookstores and booksellers, and wanted to use our musical talents to help them. Unfortunately, we don’t have any musical talents. But we hope this video will help anyway.”
— Dave Barry
