The Bard’s Favorite Bookstore

The Bard's Favorite Bookstore

‘Be not inhospitable to strangers lest they be angels in disguise.’ The Shakespeare and Company in Paris used to be a monastery in 1600s and housed popular writers like Ezra Pound, Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Ford Madox Ford, and James Joyce since it was established in 1951. The bookshop used to be called The Mistral, but owner George Whitman renamed it Shakespeare and Company in 1964. (via Jennifer Liston)
