Shakespeare & Company

Shakespeare & Company

This mythic bookshop has been a much-loved part of Parisian literary life for generations. George Whitman’s daughter, Sylvia, keeps the memories alive, and the rickety old shop, opposite the Notre Dame, is always overflowing with passionate people and ideas, and stays open until 11 p.m. every day of the week.
