Thanks to Mark Zaretsky for reaching out to do the story and doing such a fantastic job with it!
NEW HAVEN — They don’t call it for nothing.
So if you heard late last year that the quirky, community-minded, one-of-a-kind reading and performance space at 810 State St., which Roger Uihlein and others kept alive for decades, was closing at the end of 2020 in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, well, that’s not the whole story.
Uihlein, who over the years amassed a rather large collection of books that he gives away — yes, gives away — to people who visit the combination store, music and art venue and community center, did decide to give up the physical space.
But his Never Ending Books mission will continue — and over the past few months a new group of people has coalesced to revive the space and keep the community center and performance space facets of Never Ending Books alive, several members said.
