The Story Behind OUr Name
When searching for the perfect name, we looked all over for a personal meaning, something that tied into the history of the building or the bookstore that was in the space for 50+ years.
Our search led us to a short, uncomplicated, follow-your-dreams poem by 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson, To Make A Prairie. The idea of two seemingly simple things, with a dream, being able create something big and beautiful resonated with us and from that The Clover and the Bee was born.
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee.
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
- Emily Dickinson, To Make A Prairie
