The Blue House Reading Group

Join the Blue House Reading Group for a reading from Shakespeare and Company: A History of the Rag and Bone Shop of the Heart at 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, at The Blue House (1700 S Rampart Street). 

Émilie Lamy will be sharing an excerpt from Shakespeare and Company: “this first-ever history of the legendary bohemian bookstore in Paris interweaves essays and poetry from dozens of writers associated with the shop with hundred of never-before-seen archival pieces, including photographs of James Baldwin, William Burroughs and Langston Hughes; plus a foreword by the celebrated British novelist, Jeanette Winterson and an epilogue by Sylvia Whitman, the daughter of the store’s founder, George Whitman.”
