Martha Merrell’s Bookstore

I grew up going to Martha Merrell’s Bookstore on 6th Street, and I bought some of my first Racine history books there.

One thought on “Martha Merrell’s Bookstore

  1. I knew Martha well, and was pleased when she asked me to work on a program with her—I no longer remember what or for whom, etc., but most importantly, she was supportive of my starting what was I believe the first used bookstore in Racine, on 6th st., second floor, just up from Rehl’s, called The Sign of the Tiger. Probably 1962. It was there I began work on my first book: A Bibliography of William Saroyan, that was published after I returned to and remained for some years in San Francisco.
