Dear Book People


Sincerely Erik, is a moving short film written and directed by Naz Riahi about one bookseller struggling in these plague times. Although it is fictional, it poignantly reflects the reality that many folks in the book trade are experiencing all over the world at this difficult moment. The protagonist, Erik DuRon is the owner of Left bank Books in New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood.

Last week, I stumbled upon this little gem of a film that captures the mood of the balance between isolation and community that defines bookselling these days. I hope that you will like it as much as I did.
