At Home in Paris

The folks at Shakespeare & Company were nice enough to send us a picture of KTA – Issue 2 at home on their shelves. We’ve always associated that legendary bookstore with magic of all kinds, so of course it follows that KTA is displayed next to The Caterpillar, a fabulous literary magazine for children. We had the good fortune of meeting the editors of The Caterpillar last year at the GIANT Lit Mag fair at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe. Literary fate? We think so!
