(Community Matters) Tim Johnson is a very dear friend and the owner of Marfa Book Company – one of the great remaining independent bookstores in the country.
Had to steal his facebook story:
Tim Johnson: I’m talking to this older guy this afternoon, and he’s got a sort of cool, older school rock vibe about him. And he asks me, “My boss wants to know about Marfa, what books should I get him.” So I take him around the store, talking to him about things. And when we’re finished, he hands me his credit card and it says: Charlie Sexton. Naturally, I’m like, “Oh, man you’ve played with Bob Dylan.” He says, “Yeah, man that’s my boss.” So, I’m shocked, but I offer to show him my (only-half-jokey) Dylanology Section… And he asks me, “Would you like to write Bob a letter and tell him about this?” So, I did. And I invited him to play the store. And I closed by wishing him the best!
