Happy 90th Birthday, Strand Book Store!

Shelf Awareness

The Strand's 90th birthday cake.
Congratulations to the Strand Book Store, New York City, which last night celebrated its 90th birthday with a party in its Rare Book Room.

Among the many grateful booklovers who spoke were Mayor Bill de Blasio, who proclaimed yesterday as Strand Book Store Day in New York, and Lisa Lucas, executive director of the National Book Foundation.

Owners Fred Bass, who himself turns 90 very soon, and his daughter Nancy Bass Wyden happily accepted the accolades
