Why is it called Andrew's Room?
During Nialle's first years in the shop, one regular, Andrew Lauber, visited almost daily. He loved languages, especially Latin, and spoke several modern tongues fluently. His perspective was informed by the newspapers of half the world, friendships with people of many nationalities, and his own background in what was then Yugoslavia and in twixt-war Germany, as well as by his indefatigably scientific mind (he was a neurologist) and his love of the arts.
He brought with him information and opinions that opened a window on the world for us. He passed away a few years ago, and we miss him still.
