A2: Shaman Drum

On Because We Said It,  Sarah Zettel writes about the closing of Shaman Drum Bookshop. Describing her experience shopping during the store’s last days (it closes on June 30), she writes: “I won’t say I feel old, but I do feel decidedly strange, like I’m at the estate auction of an old friend rifling through their belongings. There’s something not quite decent about it, but I’m not going to stop, because I cannot shake the feeling that these books are about to evaporate from the world. It’s not true, I know, but if I can never find these books again because Shaman Drum isn’t there to set them out for me, isn’t that the same thing?” [Source]
