Petition and rally to save the Penn Book Center featured in KYW Newsradio

The petition and week-long lunchtime rally to save the Penn Book Center are featured in KYW Newsradio's article, "Penn Community Steps in to Try to Save Beloved Bookstore from Closing." The Penn Book Center 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 petition urging the university to save the store was started by English professor Chi-ming Yang and has more than 4,000 signatures and a response from the provost's office.
