A Film by John Rash
Adorned with a bold yellow and orange logo, Boomerang Bookshop: Nomad Chapter rolls through the neighborhoods of Greensboro, North Carolina. Diarra “Crckt” Leggett’s mobile bookstore is lovingly curated with titles and authors as unlikely to be found in the big box bookstores as Leggett’s customers. Launched in early 2017, Legett’s mobile bookstore follows the nearly lost tradition of library bookmobiles providing access to otherwise underserved communities.
“Nomad Chapter” is a short film profiling this unlikely independent business owner who has found the perfect job by creating it for himself. When your passion becomes your means of survival how does that affect your relationship with work? Leggett may not be comfortable thinking of himself as an entrepreneur, but he cares deeply about Boomerang and the community his business is designed to benefit.
