The Book Collector (Home of the Snake)
The Book Collector
1008 24th Street
Sacramento, CA 95816
Rachel Hansen and her husband, Richard (the Poems-For-All guy)
are co-owners of this homey used/new book store which
specializes in beat generation literature and poetry, as well as
small press poetry—especially local. The Book Collector is the
Home of the Snake, in the sense that Rachel, Richard and
their daughter, Ruhiyyih, have been supportive of us from the very beginning,
providing space for the Rattlesnake Reading Series and allowing
us to distribute all Snake products, free and otherwise, from
their store. All things ophidian can be found there, including
chaps and broadsides and flyers and whatever else the Snake has
up his sleeve. So to speak. Look for the special display
section of rattlechaps.
And, of course, Richard has plenty of free little
Poems-For-All to hand out, as well as releases from his own
small press (24th St. Irregular Press).
