Shakespeare and Company, Sylvia Beach’s bookshop and lending library in interwar Paris, counted among its members James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, and many other prominent writers and intellectuals.

In conversation will be Project Director Joshua Kotin (Department of English) and Keri Walsh (Fordham), editor of “The Letters of Sylvia Beach.”
