Event updates, book reviews, and assorted book-related thoughts from the staff (and guests!) of the Odyssey Bookshop, a locally- and family- owned/operated independent bookshop in the agricultural and sometimes weird Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.

Happy Birthday Romeo!
Last week we celebrated Romeo Grenier's 100th birthday. Romeo, the Odyssey's founder, passed away in 1997 but his legacy of bringing great people and great books together lives on. To read his full autobiography and some Odyssey history click on the link!
On Saturday, May 29th, we had a birthday tea, that included scones, and beautiful miniature cupcakes made and served by some wonderful friends of the Odyssey. It was also a reunion weekend so we were able to celebrate with some alumna as well as many familiar faces!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by to Celebrate what would have been Romeo's centennial!
