The Corner Bookstore is Amazing
5 March 2010
I knew The Corner Bookstore was a special place, but WOW. Last night, Lenny and Ray, 32-year owners of TCB, and store manager Nick Chase, hosted the most memorable, beautiful, perfect launch reading for LONG FOR THIS WORLD I could have imagined.
Some people question whether author readings “matter” anymore. An experience like last night’s reminds me what an absurd question that is. The skepticism about author readings is rooted in the notion that books are consumer commodities primarily. Visit The Corner Bookstore (Madison Ave at 93rd St) to understand why that notion is hogwash.
Coming together (in person) around literature and creative process is magic, my friends. It really is.
And check out these photos of the stunning window display they created just for last night. Did I say WOW? (Thanks to Sweta for the photos)
