Shakespeare and Company

The famous English-language bookshop located in the heart of Paris, is celebrating its centenary. American bookseller Sylvia Beach first opened it on rue de l’Odéon where it attracted the great literary expats of the time, such as Hemingway and Fitzgerald. It closed in 1941 during WWII. A decade later, another American, George Whitman opened a bookstore on Rue de la Bûcherie. Initially called Le Mistral, Whitman changed it to Shakespeare and Company in 1964, on the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth—in honour of Sylvia Beach, the founder of the original Shakespeare and Company in 1919.
