‘The store is a fresh and quiet space, a sober and calm one. Stepping inside is like, well, the feeling of cracking open a new book.
Beth told me that her modest objective in expanding her shop was the “broadening of horizons in a world where people only want to have one opinion and no one to challenge them to view a situation from another perspective.” If a bookstore were to change the world, that would be the way to do it.’
This is what international author Russell Shorto wrote in The New York Times recently. We are very proud to be mentioned as a favorite bookstore in such a prestigious newspaper, but even more proud of what and how Shorto wrote about us. If you haven’t read his marvellous piece yet, go read it here.
