We've been hearing a lot about Mary Norris' new book in the shop lately. It's led many people through our door in search of her beloved Blackwings. We added it to our required reading list after all of the raves reviews we've heard. Little did we know that the Comma Queen herself visited the shop last month! In the most recent episode of her web series for the New Yorker she unboxes and tests the Classroom Friendly sharpener she bought here and boy were we just tickled that she was so excited about it!
