Hyde Park’s Seminary Co-op Bookstore is not merely a bookstore. It is a community. It is a small town. It is a church, a sacred place.
…so says renowned legal scholar/former UChicago professor/Co-Op member Cass Sunstein in what he calls a “love letter” to our store, which ran in the chicagotribune yesterday. Touched, honored, misty-eyed - we are all of these things and more.
Great to see one of our local bookstores getting some love!

You may recognize Marina Towers from the cover of Wilco’s album “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,” or because they look like corn cobs.
