Bookstore Quest #2 – Shakespeare & Company


I first visited Shakespeare & Company in 1990 while on my honeymoon. The picture here shows me standing in front of the shop in 2000, when my husband and I went back to Paris. If you look closely, you can see I am drenched. If you ever go visit Notre Dame Cathedral, walk across the street and poke around the wonderful shop.

Shakespeare and Company was opened by George Whitman in August 1951 and has hosted many of the most important authors of the last fifty years.
