Sons and Lovers Summer Pop-Up Shop

by Robyn P. Yager


Here’s the dope: on Sunday May 20th, Sons and Lovers is holding a Summer Reading Pop-Up Shop at one of the most beautiful cafes in Vancouver, Revolver.

As a previous student myself, I understand the frustration that comes with being forced to read articles and textbooks for class and not having any time to read for pleasure. I also understand the feeling of total freedom when summer rolls around and it seems like there is all the time in the world for reading novel after novel of whatever genre my heart desires. I have heard countless people express their excitement over finally having the time to read whatever they want.

Cue lightbulb.

George and I thought: “why not provide people with a place where they can start their summer reading with some of the greatest stories and authors the literary world has to offer?”

Last December we sold bundles of five books available to buy for Christmas gifts (or for personal reasons). This summer — one day only — we present to you a book shop containing some of the greats: Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Salinger, Steinbeck, Vonnegut, Austen, Heller, Lawrence and more. We have spent the past few months looking for some of the best-looking and charismatic used books possible from Vancouver and Seattle.

We now cordially invite you to browse through our collection for some of your favourite stories and authors, or perhaps find a new favourite to enjoy this summer.


When: Sunday May 20th, 2012 , 1pm-4pm
Where: Revolver, 325 Cambie Street, Vancouver, BC
Who: Sons and Lovers Books (George and Robyn)
How: Cash only, books are priced at about $5-$7, with some exception based on editions.
Why: To promote summer reading of some of the world’s greatest books and authors.

Hope we see you there and happy summer reading!
