A little bit about us
More than just a bookshop! We are a radical, independent, locally-owned bookshop and community hub. We are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive space for nurturing new readers, invigorating lifelong bookworms, and creating a welcoming environment for everyone. The shop is run and owned by Erin, Hunter and Jay, three avid readers with many years professional experience in the bookselling and publishing industry. We are a resource for radical, diverse, and interesting books, and also a space to host writing workshops, book launches, poetry readings, and many more community events. You can easily spend hours in our large bookshop which provides a range of new and secondhand books across all genres, a children's section, and a free arts and crafts room and reading room.

Accessibility is important to us, you can find further details here:
