A correction: Bill Rubin founded Appletree Books

To the Editor:

I was glad to read the article in the Heights Observer (December issue] about Appletree Books, with its new owners and renovation. The article contained an error though—Jane Kessler did not found the business.

Bill Rubin founded Appletree Books in 1985 (I believe that was the year). Frequently his mother helped in the store, and I knew her through PTA. I used to take the Monticello bus that went down to University Station and walk from Euclid Heights Boulevard over to the store and catch the next bus back. He started such a wonderful business!

He sold the business to Jane when she retired from her first occupation. Bill is now the branch manager of the Mayfield branch of the Cuyahoga County Library System.  

I wanted to be sure that Bill Rubin received his proper recognition as founder.
