Tim Johnson, Tavernite and indie hero
Hey folks, a quick post to let you know that one of Tavern's biggest supporters, Tim Johnson of the Marfa Book Co., was featured in the New York Times today in an ongoing series of articles chronicling the visionary artists that make Marfa, Texas, one of the most interesting, curious, and vibrant art scenes in the US. Tim stocks all of our books, spreads the Tavern gospel, and runs one the finest indie bookstores in the country. Tim's got his ear to rail for all-things-art, and his book store / gallery / music venue is well worth a pilgrimage. Follow this link to see what the New York Times has to say. Of note: in the Times article, Portland's own Laura Gibson is featured doing an in-store at Marfa Book Co. What could be better?
