About Venue
The Bookstore at the Oxford Exchange is a curated collection of classic and contemporary books. We offer hardbacks and fine paperbacks across a wide range of subjects, including fiction, travel, history, biography, cuisine, writing, science and medicine, and business. Books are not going away any more than bread or milk or shoes are going away. If anything, books are becoming more highly prized than ever as we appreciate the aesthetics of the book as object. Paper, ink, boards, sophisticated jacket design and illustrations don’t translate to e-readers, and it is these elements that we have made our focus at the Oxford Exchange. The Oxford Exchange Bookstore is more than simply the titles we stock. It is the way that we organize the sections that makes for our signature browsing experience. Instead of the traditional categories our books are shelved under headings such as “Complicated Women,” “Solace,” “Co-Existing,” and our favorite, “Swashbuckling.” Thematic sections invite one into the books in a new way, and we hope lead to discoveries that increase the passion for reading.
Football, Florida, and the Soul of College Sports - An Exclusive Conversation with Mike McIntire What happens when one of our most prized and cultural pastimes balloons into a multi-billion dollar industry that jeopardizes and undermines university standards and values at an ethical, moral, and legal level? What is the answer was nothing at all? With his new book, Champions Way, McIntire continues to hold the system to account -- using the Florida State Seminoles as a lens to examine the corruption, cause, and scandalous history of college football at large. McIntire visits the Oxford Exchange for an illuminating conversation, explaining the engine of college sports, how and why we got here, and to offer some advice on how we might reform while holding on to the many positive aspects of collegiate competition. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. WHEN Sunday, September 10 | 11:30 am WHERE Oxford Exchange 420 West Kennedy Boulevard Tampa, Florida 33606
