Author Emma Straub’s pair of Brooklyn book stores are magic. She clearly believes (as her website says) in the transformative power of books as she writes and sells a collection of magical ones.
In both of her two carefully chosen locations in the heart of Brooklyn, a warm atmosphere and fun curation inspires lengthy perusing. Their shelves contain an assortment of diverse voices and narratives, each thoughtfully selected to reflect the magnificent tapestry of human experiences. They also know how to inspire young minds, and children will love these stores as much as (or more than) adults do.
Books Are Magic also hosts events that feature both emerging talent and cherished authors. These gatherings are accessible to all and are offered either free of charge or at easily affordable prices.
