Mention the name Karl Kilian to just about anyone in Houston's literary community, and they’ll come back at you with a story about the Brazos Bookstore founder.
“Karl seemed to have read every book he ever stocked,” recalls Matt Henneman, co-owner and current chairman of Brazos’s board of directors, “and he never failed to have a great recommendation handy.”
Adds Blue Willow Bookshop owner Valerie Koehler: “He was the consummate bookseller, knowledgeable in every way. Karl was a staunch supporter of the literary arts in Houston; a legend in the Houston book scene.”
