Best Bookstore of the Year

Literati Bookstore in Ann Arbor, Michigan has been named PW‘s Bookstore of the Year. Literati which opened in 2013 celebrated the store’s fifth anniversary last April.  Brooklyn transplant co-owners Hilary and Michael Gustafson posted on Facebook: “When we opened Literati we knew the importance of bookstores in our own lives and hoped to continue the long tradition of bookselling in Ann Arbor. We wanted to foster the idea that bookstores are places where people gather, where people discover new ideas, attend readings of an author they’ve never heard about before, and where people can surprise themselves. These ideas of community, curiosity, and a craving to interact with real people at a real bookstore are not new, and they did not begin here at Literati, but we feel incredibly lucky to work every day to keep them alive.”
