Au Revoir, Sydni

There are not many bookstore/ coffeehouses which can boast having a visual artist living above, painting and drawing some stunning work (the play of light reminds us of Vermeer, Millet and Rembrandt) for display around the bookstore. Atop all that, she has some great reading recommendations, too. Sydni leaves us for the wilds of Plattsburgh, NY, but she will always be our resident artiste.
