The Strand carries over 2.5 million used, new, and rare books, covering topics as far-ranging as occult to philosophy to finance. Their in-store events feature some of today’s most interesting and provocative personalities, from James Franco to Patti Smith and dialogues between such greats as Junot Diaz and Hilton Als. The Strand regularly hosts readings, panels, book signings, and other literary events.
