Nan Graham (Scribner)

When I was sixteen, I drove from London to Cannes with an English family whose au pair I was going to be for a few weeks. They had planned their route in order to stop at the out of the way five-star L'Oasis in La Napoule. It was my introduction to the concept of a destination restaurant. Mitch Kaplan introduced me to the concept of the destination bookstore.

Books + Books started as the incredibly cool place, in Coral Gables, and then got hotter and hotter. At lunch, Frank McCourt would mention that he'd really like to go to Miami. Jeannette Walls would make a deal with her publicist to add a city to her tour. I thought they just wanted a little sunshine. But it was the light of Mitch Kaplan they were looking for.

This is a man whose passion for books and generosity to authors sustains us all. That he remains charming and ebullient and indefatigable at all times is uncontested. Put a thousand people in a room at a BEA and there will be a radiant presence, a low-buttoned shirt. It is Mitch Kaplan, a gaggle of authors around him.

Coral Gables, Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Grand Cayman. Mitch, we need you in Tribeca, too.

Congratulations and infinite thanks,
Nan Graham
Vice President & Editor-in-Chief
