New York native Harris Healy first began his career at Logos Book Store in 1985 as a cardbuyer for the shop. Since then, he has held every title from store clerk to manager, and is now the proud owner of the small shop. Located on 84th and York, the charming shop specializes in spirituality and children’s books. Harris chose to move the store to the Upper East Side because he wanted it to be located in a residential area with lots of families. “I grew up on 95th and Fifth, so this area has a special place in my heart and seemed like the perfect location for a small general store,” said Harris Healy, Owner of Logos Book Store.
Logos has a loyal local base of customers – one customer even started a book club, Kill Your T.V., at the store 15 years ago that is still going strong. Comprised of community members who share a love of reading, the club meets every month to discuss their latest novel. In the summer months they are even able to meet outside and enjoy the nice weather on the back porch of the shop. The club is open to everyone and they read a wide range of books from many different genres.
The children’s story time is another Logos staple that is very popular – they host a lively group of children ranging from birth to five years old for a fun hour of reading and sing-a-longs every Monday at 11 a.m. Other special events at the store include book launches and signings – visit the store’s site at http://www.logosbookstorenyc.com/aboutbio.html to stay up to date on all of the latest happenings! We can’t think of a better or more convenient place to stop by and find a new book to read; the staff is super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and it is just a quick walk from Azure!
