Sylvia Beach

Happy Birthday, Sylvia Beach!

For Women’s History Month, I’ve chosen to celebrate American expatriate publisher and bookstore owner, Sylvia Beach. In the fall of 1919, Beach opened Shakespeare & Co., the most (in)famous bookstore east of the Atlantic. Beach was a key part in the financial support & publishing of many modernist writers in the 1920s, including James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway.
