The Bend Newspaper in Bend Oregon recently ran a feature on the New Agia Sophia Bookshop fb:

“Agia Sophia opens in Bend

From its 1984 opening, The Open Book in Bend had been a mainstay for book lovers needing a fix of Kurt Vonnegut, Barbara Kingsolver, John D. MacDonald or any of thousands of other authors.”

” “Everyone has a deep-seated need, at the core of our humanity, to gather together with people in our neighborhoods and communities, and contemplate the things that are meaningful to us.” – Fr. Damian Kuolt.


The Open Book bookstore has been serving Bend since the 1980s, and we are continuing this model of ‘books for trade’, and expanding the vision to combine a classic coffeehouse with this historic bookstore.”  from the webpage click image for more info.
