I can imagine after sacking the sacred citadel of Troy, and a ten-year voyage home, Odysseus was a little peckish.
At 6pm sharp, the Reed College Bookstore turns into Homer’s Hut, a wonderland of nourishment and personal care items. Until 3am, Reedies can purchase from a hodgepodge of nibbles- salubrious and sweet.
Meet Annam, who’s name coincidentally means “Food of the Gods,” has been working at Homer’s since her sophomore year.
“I started as a cashier, and now I’m a student manager/resident ‘go-to’ girl.”
Annam really wanted to work in the bookstore, “…because I had a friend who worked there and loved it. You get to talk to all sorts of people, and you can do your homework and listen to music while you’re working. And I love my bosses! It’s like having another family here.”
Salt & vinegar chips, Snicker’s ice cream bars, and sparkling Yerba Maté are Annam’s favorite Homer’s items.
