The Open Book mission is to bring good books to the attention of readers. The bookstore is unique: it doesn’t try to have the breadth of selection you’ll find at other retailers. What you’ll find instead is a carefully curated collection of books that they endorse. Open Book has literary and classic fiction and nonfiction, young adult and children’s books, and a range of books by local authors in the Greater Philadelphia area. And if it’s not in stock, they're happy to special order.
Open Book also runs classes, workshops and events for readers, writers, and thinkers.
