Gorgeous gift books, stocking stuffers, happy hour drinks… that’s right, it’s time for another book fair for grown-ups!
Join us as we set up shop next to the bar at State Street Market for another Boozy Book Fair, this time with a holiday twist! Our booksellers will be slinging gift recommendations for everyone on your list while the bartenders mix drinks. So come grab a drink, check out some amazing books, and, oh yeah, leave the kids at home.
Join us for the launch of local author Nicole Chen's picture book debut, How We Say I Love You. This event will be held outdoors, in front of the store.
How do you tell your family that you love them? For Hana, love is all around her: Mom stirs love into a steaming pot of xifan. Dad cheers with love at her soccer game. Hana says good night with love by rubbing her grandma's feet and pouring her grandpa his sleepy tea. And as the light fades, Hana's parents tuck her into bed and give her a good night kiss.
So many families express their love in all they do for one another, every day. How We Say I Love You is a book that wraps you in a hug and invites your family to share their own special ways of showing love.
It’s the next meeting of our middle grade book club for ages 9+! Led by bookseller extraordinaire Lorilee, we hope to introduce interested readers to amazing new books and the opportunity to talk about them in a fun, relaxed group setting. Our meeting will be held outdoors, in front of the store.

A cave monster . . . an abandoned demon . . . a ghost who wants to erase history . . . a killer commandant . . .

You'll be reunited with Aru Shah, Zane Obispo, Min the fox spirit, Sal and Gabi, Gum Baby, Nizhoni Begay, Paola Santiago, Sikander Aziz, and Riley Oh. Who is the new hero? Read Rick Riordan's short story to find out!
In-person storytime is back! Join us every Sunday morning at 10:30am in front of the store as Mary Sheila shares some of our favorite read-alouds.
