Closing up shop
Play • 25 min

Our story tonight is called “Closing up shop” and it’s a story about a book shop at the end of the day. Lev Grossman wrote in The Magician’s Land “It didn’t matter where you were, if you were in a room full of books you were at least halfway home.” If that feels true to you, then this story is for you. Beyond the friendliness of the company of books, this story is also about being in a safe place and looking out from it at one’s leisure, and about the lovely feeling of anticipating something nice.

So get cozy and ready to sleep.
