We are Key West’s locally-owned, independent bookstore
— a community center for readers and writers,
a place where you can browse the latest books, attend
readings by well-known writers, meet local authors,
and just inhale the intoxicating aroma of paper and
bindings. We’re a non-profit, part of The Studios of Key
West, but we aren’t asking you for donations. We’re just
asking you to come and treat yourself to a book. That’s
all it will take to keep us alive and thriving.
We bring authors together with readers at in-store
events. We have hosted notable writers ranging from
Francine Klagsbrun, Carl Hiaasen and Victor LaValle,
to landscape architect Raymond Jungles.
