Herbert Memorial

06/30/2022 - 6:00pm

Our beloved store cat Herbert passed away June 21 after a quick decline. It was a shock to us, as we're sure it is to you. We know how so many people loved Herbert (that face! that attitude!), so thank you to everyone who was a part of his life! Herbert joined us at the end of October 2015. Our store cat Atticus (passed 2018) trained Herbert up in bookselling. Herbert quickly became an icon and worked his way into the hearts of many.

Join us as we celebrate the life of store cat Herbert. We'll pay tribute in photos and stories. If you have memories or photos you would like to share, please email us (
