Today, the Strand carries over 2.5 million used, new and rare books, covering topics as far-ranging as occult to philosophy to finance. The store also offers an ever-changing array of literary gifts and goods from Moleskines to coffee mugs, and everything in-between. Really, they mean everything in-between from a Shakespeare insult mug to the wildly popular Strand onesie. The in-store events feature some of today’s most interesting and provocative personalities from James Franco to Patti Smith to dialogues between such greats as Junot Diaz and Hilton Als to Robert Caro and Frank Rich.
Jimmy will be signing books at Strand Bookstore on Thursday November 21 between 7 and 8 PM.
