Tag Archives: Remarkable Bookcycle
Well, sort of.
Jane Green’s Remarkable Bookcycle — the quirky, fun homage to the late, much-lamented Remarkable Book Shop — reappeared on Main Street this weekend, across the street from the old pink store at the corner of Parker Harding Plaza.
Next week (note rain date: Sunday, May 5, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.), you can find it at the first-ever Outdoor Market. Savvy + Grace owner Annette Norton developed the idea of filling the private parking lot behind Tavern on Main with local artisans.
Nearly 2 dozen vendors will offer jewelry, terrariums, hand-designed greeting cards and more.
The Remarkable Book Shop is gone. But the Remarkable Bookcycle is back.
And next weekend’s Outdoor Market may be the start of a remarkable new tradition of its own.
Last weekend, “06880” reported the remarkable story of the resurrection of the Remarkable Book Shop. The beloved pink shop suddenly appeared at Compo Beach, as a free library balanced on a 3-wheeled bike.
World popular author (and longtime Westport resident) Jane Green masterminded the project.
But she couldn’t have done it without the help of Ryan Peterson. The recent Staples High School graduate transformed Jane’s old cargo trike into a new/old/way cool lending (and donating) library.
Pictures told the story. But now — just before heading to Fairfield University, to study engineering — Ryan’s sent along a video of his handiwork.
Enjoy it. And remember: Jane knows the Remarkable Book Shop only through stories. She moved here after it closed.
Ryan was not even born then.
It takes a village to nurture a book store. And then bring it back to life.
