by Meredith MacKenzie In light of our Independent Bookstores Across America map, I've recently been inspired by the unique story of Atlantis Books, which is across the big pond in Santorini, Greece. The original idea for Atlantis came in 2002 after a handful of Americans traveled the Greek isles, finished their books and went in search of a decent bookstore. The beauty of the landscape inspired them, but there was no bookshop, so they drank some wine and decided to open one. The unique live/work space has become a cultural center for the community with poetry readings on the roof, a Tzatziki festival and book binding classes. I sat down with Chris Bloomfield, one of the co-founders, to get the scoop.
