We believe in readers. We believe in books. We believe in the power of the written word. We believe in the magic of children discovering the world of books. We believe in this community. We believe that people prefer buying books from their friendly neighborhood bookstore rather than a website. We believe in browsing for hours with a good cup of tea. We believe in staying up until 2 in the morning because you just can’t put a book down. We believe in book clubs, libraries, and reading under trees. We believe that some books you make your friends read and some books you should keep under your bed and never tell anyone about. We believe in making a difference through books.

New Staff Favorite!
If you were told the date of your death, how would it shape your present? It's 1969 in New York City's Lower East Side, and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children—four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness—sneak out to hear their fortunes.
Their prophecies inform their next five decades. Golden-boy Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in '80s San Francisco; dreamy Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician, obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy; eldest son Daniel seeks security as an army doctor post-9/11, hoping to control fate; and bookish Varya throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the boundary between science and immortality.
