Shakespeare & Company

visiting the fabulous Shakespeare&Co bookshop. and meeting up with Jessi Graustein from Folded Word there.

the bookshop, i read the story of it on the way to Paris in the train: it was one woman who made it happen back then, Sylvia Beach. she started the bookshop that turned into a meeting place of authors then, and also: published Joyce’s “Ulysses”, at a time when no publisher would risk publishing it. it was a long time ago, but from spirit, maybe it’s not really that far away from today’s indie scene.
