A landmark in Lenox, Massachusetts, The Bookstore is a magical, beatnik gem thanks to its owner (Matthew Tannenbaum, “a tall, solicitous, eccentric, engagingly garrulous lover of stories and words and literature who ritually answers the phone with a jaunty nerdish “Hello, bookstore!”’)’s passion for stories. This intimate portrait of the store and the family at its heart offers a journey through good times and hard times, and the stories hidden on the shelves.
