rea literary buffs, devotees of the printed page in a state with the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and a city with a great university: What’s cooler than a pop-up bookstore in a vintage camper? Stumped? Here’s an easier one: How many bookstores are there in and around Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall? At the time of this writing, four. How many local authors are nationally read and celebrated? By last count . . . You get the picture; pick a font and write the caption. You can’t plop down a book in a coffee shop around here without heads turning to see the title. You can’t open a Word file without folks presuming it’s a manuscript. And they may be right. Here in Charlottesville especially, but all around the area, we love our authors and we cherish our books: We read ‘em, we write ‘em and we donate ‘em to the library book sale to make room on our shelves for more. We have the annual Virginia Festival of the Book, five days of readings, talks, panel discussions, and school visits by popular and prominent authors, plus workshops for writers. We have excellent privately owned shops carrying books from roughly the time when writing was invented to this past Tuesday, and we

BY KEN WILSON

have used bookshops where the vintage of the volume and its unknown history connect us to a previous reader we can only imagine.

Heartwood It’s only natural that a town with a school like UVA should have a great used bookstore practically across the street. And it does. Heartwood Books on Elliewood Avenue (on “the Corner”), which owner Paul Collinge opened in 1975, is one of the oldest bookstores in town, and one of the most delightfully jam-packed. Walk up the three outside steps, open the door, inhale the paper smell, and enter: the aisles are narrow, the shelves and tables are overflowing. It’s an atmosphere that gives serious readers a good feeling. “The history of literature is sort of our main thing,” says Art Collier, the man most likely to be seen behind the Heartwood desk, talking books and making recommendations. “We’re especially interested in good fiction, some literary criticism, and books about Thomas Jefferson.” Excellent sections of volumes on the classics, the arts and performing arts, Virginia history, philosophy, and pretty much everything else the general reader loves are to be found here—and to be savored slowly. “The fine art of browsing is being

lost,” Collier laments. But not at Heartwood. This may be the digital age, but “the people who come in to the shop love to browse, love to hold their books.” They value that “tactile connection to reading. “People are just so complimentary all the time,” he says enthusiastically, “People who haven’t visited for a long time are always so happy that we’re still here. They’ll say ‘Half of my library came from you.’ It’s a wonderful experience; people feel such loyalty to us, from all over the country and even the world.”

Daedalus Bookshop Bookish types know Stephen Dedalus of James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man and Ulysses. They also know the original Daedalus (with an “a” before the “e”), the mythological Cretan inventor who designed the labyrinth to contain the Minotaur (and later the wings with which his son Icarus flew too close to the sun, which melted them and plunged him to a watery death). Owner Sandy McAdams meant to name his new used bookshop on 4th Street NE after Joyce’s first anti-hero when he painted the lovely tile sign flanking the door of the business back 1976 or so. But he accidentally spelled it like the hapless father. When he realized his mistake, he decided it was too much

trouble to fix. Exploring Daedalus and perhaps laying yourself a trail of intended purchases, the better to find your way out after wandering its three floors with their 100,000 books, you might say his memory slip was fitting. “We’ve got a map, or you can look around,” newcomers might be told. Daedalus is a well-stuffed labyrinth that bibliophiles get happily lost in. McAdams, who co-opened Charlottesville’s venerable C & O Restaurant as well, may not be in the shop much anymore, but “his eclectic thumbprint” is all through it, the shop’s Seth Millner says. “A lot of this was a passion project for him over the years. It’s really just a mountain of books. He runs it almost like an adoption center, and it’s a place to treasure hunt more than anything else.” Look for the poetry and literary magazines upstairs.

Blue Whale Books A blue whale head sits on top of the signboard advertising rare and out of print books, original prints, and antiquarian maps outside of Blue Whale Books on the west end of the Downtown Mall. Owner Scott Fennessey was thinking of naming his place the Leviathan when he opened it in 1994, but decided a less dark and heavy name was called for. Everyone loves blue whales, don’t

they? And they love the store’s sole feline employee, Gizmo. Nowadays some customers head straight to the back of the shop, to the full room’s worth of art books and bios. Others are drawn by the antiquarian books or the thousands of original prints from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, as well as original maps from as early as the 1500s. Recently added are five whole shelves’ worth of Medieval studies volumes. Shelves of newly acquired volumes flank the doorway. “We focus on books that are in excellent condition,” says manager Andrew Hniat, the main buyer and cataloger of the shop’s inventory. “Sometimes people don’t realize that it’s a used bookstore. They comment on the selection, and they love how organized it is; they can find what they want.”

2nd Act Books

THE REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.C-VILLE.COM

Just across the Mall from the Paramount Theater is a spot that’s been full of books for a quarter of a century or more—or so estimates Daphne Spain, owner of 2nd Act Books, its current in-

carnation. Spain has been running the shop that used to be Read It Again, Sam since 2019. “I had been a volunteer there when I was teaching at UVA,” she remembers. “I would go in every week”—and as her website has it, “she wielded a fierce feather duster.” Today, like all of Charlottesville’s privately owned booksellers, 2nd Act has character, a comfortable lived in—read in—feel to it. When she reopened the store under its new name, Spain says, “I knew I needed a different niche. “The kids is what I focused on—and outreach to the African-American community.” Look around and you’ll note her children’s section with its train set, its puzzle on the table, and its space to read. Of 2nd Act’s 15,000 books—nonfiction, fiction, sci-fi, mysteries, history including Black history, science, and much else—a couple of thousand are for kids.

New Dominion Bookshop New Dominion Bookshop on the Mall opened way back in 1924, making it the oldest bookstore in the Commonwealth.

A gentleman named C.C.—for Christopher Columbus—Wells bought it in 1926, and ran it in several downtown locations until 1987, when it was purchased by one of his employees, Carol Troxell, who made the store a center for Charlottesville literary life with regular readings and signings by both local and nationally known authors. Julia Kudravetz, co-founder of the monthly Charlottesville Reading Series featuring poetry and prose, purchased New Dominion, now Charlottesville’s only independent new bookshop, in October of 2017 after Troxell’s untimely death, and has carried on the shop’s much valued traditions, including what she calls “old-fashioned touch things.” Things like helping customers eager for recommendations, something members of the staff, several of whom are writers or have graduate degrees in the humanities to their names, are well-qualified for. There is a lot to choose from. “We try to carry all kinds of writing,” Kudravetz says, and that includes volumes on everything from gardening, art, and interior design, to history, philosophy, biography and memoir, plus no small amount of serious fiction and poetry—“literary things you wouldn’t find,” she notes at a chain store. Not to forget the kids either: “I love having the kids section,” Kudravetz says. “I love it that we’re not a separate children’s and adult store. Adults like to read Calvin and Hobbes sometimes.” More than that, New Dominion is more of a community hub than ever. Its book club, with an average attendance of about 25 people, meets once a month, up the flight of stairs at the back of the store, or in the lovely mature rose garden just out the window. The UVA Creative Writing Department holds readings Thursday evenings. More open-to-the-public readings and book talks take place Friday and Saturday evenings. “We are lucky that John Grisham has had a wonderful relationship with the Bookshop for many, many years,” says Kudravetz. “He comes and he signs inscriptions for people.” Other authors who maintain similar ties to the shop include fantasy writer Alex Harrow, and Jocelyn Nicole Johnson, whose collection of short stories, My Monticello, garnered much critical acclaim.

Crozet’s Bluebird Bookstop One great place to find popular fiction is just out of town in Crozet at Blue-

bird Bookstop. Flannery Buchanan, a mother of four avid readers, established it to provide a community hub for eager bibliophiles in her area. Buchanan began in April 2021 with a piece of vintage vacation equipment more associated with public parks than private libraries: a 1966 Banner custom camper she filled with books and took around to wineries, breweries, craft festivals and the like. “People would come to the trailer wherever I was and they’d have a drink and we’d all sit around talking,” Buchanan says. That led to Bluebird’s “bookish meet-ups”—“friends hanging out” talking about whatever they’re currently reading. In the meantime, Buchanan found a

spot in Crozet on Three Notch’d Road, opened a regular terra firma bookstore, and stocked it with “new and notable” volumes including young adult and graphic novels, and kids’ books. Today along with meet-ups there are frequent events including author’s readings, a new mom’s group and, yes, a book club. Once a month or so, the bookmobile still goes someplace fun.

A Community of Readers “People come in and say, ‘Oh my gosh, you’ve got four bookstores right here on the Mall,’ Daphne Spain says. Spain made a business card size map with all four of them on it for her employees to give to customers who can’t find what they want at 2nd Act. She even took them around to the other three bookstores. “I think it makes us more of a bookstore community,” she says. “There is this whole community of book readers out there.” Art Collier agrees. “No matter what country you come from, no matter how old or how young you are, when you come into our shop,” he says—and he might as well be speaking for them all—“you are part of that community.” Indeed.

When it comes to housing, little things shouldn’t make a difference. If you have children or are pregnant and a landlord refuses to rent to you, requires a higher security deposit, limits the use of facilities, or says you can only live in certain areas of a housing complex ... that could be discrimination. And housing discrimination because of familial status is against the law. If you believe you may be a victim of housing discrimination, contact HUD or your local Fair Housing Center:

Your Choice. Your Right. Your Home. A public service message from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in partnership with the National Fair Housing Alliance. The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability. For more information, visit www.hud.gov/fairhousing.
