Schoen Books

Once upon a time, a young man named Ken started collecting books. Soon, there were so many books, and so little room, that he realized he had to become a bookdealer and move to bigger digs. Ken married Jane and the moved to an old brick firehouse in Western Massachusetts. The building got filled with book shelves and all the remarkable books they have been searching for and buying: Judaica in all languages, exile literature, the Holocaust, the Middle East, psychoanalysis, and the social sciences. A catalogue goes out every month to the four corners of the earth, and then the orders come in by phone, fax, and e-mail. And yes, people occasionally ring our doorbell. So, when you're visiting the area, come schmooze and browse! -Ken Schoen & Jean Trigere Schoen Books at the Old Firehouse, 7 Sugarloaf Street, South Deerfield, MA 01373.
