Third Place Seward Park is a general-interest bookstore featuring new and used books with a used-book buying counter open seven days a week. The shop opened its doors in May 2016 in the Seward Park neighborhood of south Seattle.

The Seward Park location continues the Third Place mission of providing a gathering space for its community by hosting over 200 events a year, including readings by nationally known and locally known authors, a monthly reading by the African-American Writers’ Alliance (second Monday of every month at 7pm), a monthly Story Time for Grown Ups (third Sunday of every month at 7pm), nine monthly book clubs, and Give Back Fundraisers that have raised thousands of dollars for our local schools and community organizations.

Third Place Books Seward Park shares a space with Raconteur, a full-service restaurant and cafe, as well as a bar serving craft cocktails and beer. Drink specials are available from Raconteur during book clubs and author readings.
