A small (404 sq ft.), one-room store with towering bookcases, it lays claim to being the "oldest continuous bookshop" devoted solely to the sale of poetry and poetry criticism. Here was a place where poets from T.S. Eliot and e.e. cummings to Robert Lowell, John Asbury and Adrienne Rich had hung out in their day.

Ifeanyi Menkiti grew up in Onitsha, Nigeria.  He moved to the United States to attend college.  He received a B.A. from Pamona College in California, a M.S. from Columbia University, a M.A. from New York University and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Harvard University.  Ifeanyi has been published in numerous literary journals including Ploughshares, New Letters,  New Directions, The Massachusetts Review and others.  He also published numerous articles on philosophical issues in many  journals such as Philosophical Forum, The Journal of Value Inquiry, The Harvard Education Review, and the Journal of the American Academy of Religion. His work has been on NPR and he has received a Massachusetts Council of the Arts Fellowship in 1978 as well as a poetry award from the NEA.
