Literati Bookstore

Beginning in January 2013, Michael Gustafson and Hilary Lowe spent nearly three months renovating a twenty-six-hundred-square-foot storefront in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to prepare for the grand opening of Literati Bookstore. Not everything went according to plan: Unforeseen expenses and delays, a botched order of fifteen thousand bookmarks, and a near total loss of their first week's sales threatened the bookstore's success. But over a hundred members of the Ann Arbor community turned up for Literati's inaugural reading, and now, more than eight months after the store's grand opening, Gustafson and Lowe have built a successful community around their literary dream. The following images offer a behind the scenes look at the couple's journey, which contributing editor Jeremiah Chamberlin chronicles in "How to Make a Life, Maybe Even a Living: Opening an Independent Bookstore" in the current issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
