It has been famed for decades as a gathering place for literary greats, artists and tourists. Authors such as Hemingway, Joyce and Fitzgerald join weekly literary salons. The store struggled with Nazi occupation through WWII but reopened as a meeting place for the writers and artists known as the Lost Generation. Today it is a mecca for tourists and the center of the independent bookstore scene, hosting author readings and events for current authors, actors and activists. Open the store’s archives to learn about those who have passed through its iconic doors for more than 100 years.
