Toronto: 1; London: 0
@HuisceBeatha @esotericlondon I’ve relocated to Toronto but will be opening a bricks & mortar bookshop here in the near future!— Clerkenwell Tales (@ClerkenwellTale)April 4, 2014
After a three-hour delay caused by our being re-routed to New Foundland to get a sick passenger emergency care, I finally got to my ‘hood away from my ‘hood, Clerkenwell, in northern London. Walking through the hip hustle bustle lite on Exmouth Market, I felt something was off and looked up: my favorite bookshop in the area, Clerkenwell Tales, had been shuttered.
A tweet got me an answer. Best wishes to your second go in Toronto, a fine book city. Now I need a new bookshop.
Happy 75th anniversary to an American classic. Need a guide for book groups? Penguin’s marketer suggests Susan Shillinglaw’s On Reading The Grapes of Wrath, published only in February.
Happy closing time from London.
