Whether it's because of a 6 am newspaper review or a midnight recommendation from a friend, you can order the great books you want, from us, online 24/7. That includes eBooks.
Or, come visit and let our booksellers, with their encyclopedic knowledge of books past, present and even future, make customized recommendations based on your reading tastes. Not chatty? Browse our shelves and ever-changing displays to your heart's content (or until we close for the evening). Know that a book is coming out from your favorite author and want it the day it lands? Pre-order from us and we'll have it waiting for you.
Speaking of your favorite authors: Since 2009, we have been presenting Pulitzer and Man Booker Prize winning authors, bestselling scribes (before and after hitting that #1 spot), and local writers launching first (second, or third) books. We partner with local businesses to offer fine arts previews and fine foods, and even bring authors to schools and libraries throughout the city (and beyond!). Don't miss out! Subscribe to our twice-monthly e-newsletter via the column to the right or visit us on Facebook. You can request autographed copies of books by any author we have coming, though we try to have signed copies available after the event, too.
Click on the events listed below for more details on authors and their books, or check out our upcoming events page for a complete list of confirmed appearances. Also be sure to check out our budding schedule of author appearances for kids, young adults and teens, many of which are held at area libraries.
A handful of our events are ticketed. Tickets are normally the cost of the featured author's book. It's like buying the book and seeing the author for free! We use Brown Paper Tickets, a non-profit service that donates 5% of their funds to charities. Click on the BPT logo to be taken to all our ticketed events.
If you can’t make it in, or it’s before/after hours, be sure to check out Daniel’s (daily post) blog, Boswell and Books, or the booksellers’ (occasional post) blog, The Boswellians. Thanks for checking us out. We hope to see you in the store soon.
