We hope you all are keeping safe and well. We’ve been extremely moved by the messages of solidarity we’ve received these past weeks from readers around the world.
Which is why we’re especially pleased to announce that this Monday—two months after lockdown began in France—Shakespeare and Company is opening its doors and online shop once again.
For those of you in Paris, this means you can visit the bookshop and café. We’ve taken steps to ensure that you can browse in comfort and safety—or, if you prefer to order online using our “Pick-Up” option, you can even collect your books without passing through the main shop. Please note for the moment: We are taking only card payments in the bookshop and café, which will be takeaway only. Secondhand book-buying is by appointment only. And the bookshop’s opening hours have changed slightly (see above) and may change again, so keep an eye on our website and social media for the latest information.
We are also now able to ship orders again. If you want to support Shakespeare and Company through this tough period—and bring a little taste of the bookshop to wherever you are in the world—the best way to do so is by placing an online order. There’s still time to subscribe to our Year of Reading subscriptions, for example. You could also choose one of our themed gift boxes, treat yourself to a rare book, or purchase a voucher for you or a loved one to spend on that happy day when you make it back to the shop.
We all know it will be some time before things return to any semblance of normality. Indeed we hope that any “new normal” will see a fairer, more sustainable world emerge, a world in which those heroic essential workers who’ve risked their lives for us these past months are finally given the respect—and remuneration!—they deserve. Over the weeks and months to come, especially for those of you who can’t get to Shakespeare and Company, we hope to use innovative and exciting ways to bring Shakespeare and Company to you. To be the first to find out how, make sure you keep reading our newsletters, as well as subscribe to our podcast, Instagram and Twitter feeds.
Sending love to you all.
Everyone at Shakespeare and Company
