Summary

Summary

Meet the trailblazer and book lover who started the Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris, France, in this beautifully illustrated picture book that celebrates stories, reading, and the importance of sharing ideas.

"Books are my treasures--the best that I've got."
Books are like rivers that flow through my head.
Books are like roads," she just might have said.
"Roads that connect my old self to my new.
Unlocking our hearts to what's noble and true."

Told by the bookstore itself, Sylvia's Bookshop tells the story of the legendary Shakespeare and Company, its owner Sylvia Beach, and the many great writers who gathered there to meet, read, and remind us that books are more than the words on the page.
