Mike the Poet

"Vroman’s is definitely one of the two or three greatest bookstores in Southern California. I am a big, big giant book aficionado. I never stop buying books. I’m always buying books. When I was teaching, I would come here and buy books for my lesson plans. I have an equal obsession with poetry, urban planning and architecture and L.A. History. I find new things here (Vroman’s). I find a lot of California history books at Vroman’s.

My wife and I, our first date was in Pasadena. We love Pasadena. Vroman’s is one of my beacons in Pasadena. Ya know, the first thing I do when I go to San Francisco is go to City Lights. When I’m in Berkley I go to Moe’s Books. When I go to Santa Cruz I go to Logos. You guys are in that elite category. Part of the heavyweights.

I went to UCLA in the early 90s but all the bookstores in Westwood closed in the late 80s. I remember going to Westwood a lot as a kid with my dad. Westwood really changed. It became more chains. There was a real warmth about Westwood that kind of died in the late 80s, early 90s. What you’re saying…whether it’s a hardware store or a bookstore…Vroman’s is a link to that era.”

Thanks to Vroman’s..
