...they support us.
In honor of our 200th Classic (the very fine, very touching, and very dark The Engagement by Georges Simenon) independent bookstores around the country are putting on special NYRB Classics displays. Please visit them and spend money when you do!
[The photograph above shows 4th Avenue in NYC as it looked once upon a time, when it was known for its used bookstores. Now there's only one store on that stretch, Alabaster (which has a great, selective selection). But 4th Avenue is where The Strand Bookstore got its start—so we needn't mourn too much!]
Our thanks goes out to all of these booksellers and to their excellent staffs!
And if there are any bookstores not on this list that are interested in participating in this promotion, the Random House sales staff is still signing up shops.
