Literati has quickly become one of Ann Arbor’s favorite small businesses. Mike and Hilary Gustafson, Michigan natives, opened the store in 2013 to provide A2’s downtown with a general bookstore, and they take great pride in their well-curated selection. With a new coffee shop, Espresso Bar, located upstairs, Literati hosts author events, panels, and new to the menu, book trivia nights.
