Boston’s Second Gift to the World: The Grolier Poetry Bookshop

The Grolier Poetry Bookshop is one of only two “for-profit” bookstores in the country entirely devoted to poetry.1 It’s Boston’s “Second Gift.”


15,000 books in a single room, the first bookstore in Cambridge to carry Ulysses, and the first store to carry the magazine that gave birth to the L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E movement: who else would have the perpetual chutzpah to be this good? An invaluable resource.

For more: Grolier Poetry’s website, Grolier on wikipedia, and Harvard Mag. on G’s recent change-of-ownership.
