Petition to save the Penn Book Center, started by Chi-ming Yang, featured in the Daily Pennsylvanian

The Daily Pennsylvanian's article, "A Petition to Save the Penn Book Center Has Garnered More Than 3,000 Signatures," shares how the announcement of the Penn Book Center's planned closure prompted English Professor Chi-ming Yang to start a petition for the University to work with the store owners to save the store. The store is owned by Ashley Montague, who graduated from Penn in 1999 with a Ph.D. in English, and Michael Row, who received a Wharton Ph.D. in 2001. The article also features Comparative Literature PhD candidate Julia Dasbach, English PhD candidate Orchid Tierney, and College senior Derek Willie.
