Quality Steven Svmbersky Hang Out Time, 5/26

May ’22
12:00 am

Quimby’s Bookstore founder Steven Svymbersky is visiting from Quimby’s Bookstore NYC! He’ll hang out all day with us on Thurs, May 26th from noon to 6pm, perhaps regaling us in the City of the Big Shoulders with stories of bookselling in the Big Apple, or perhaps reminiscing about Wicker Park in the 90s. Who’s to say? Come, say hi and have a bitch session about how much cooler this neighborhood used to be.

Facebook invite here.
