Owner Ed Devereux opened Unabridged Bookstore in its current location in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood in 1980, and while it has expanded since, his vision has remained the same: to promote and sell great books. Unabridged is known for its dedicated and knowledgeable staff, their hand-written personal recommendations, and unparalleled sale book section. The bookstore hosts a variety of author events throughout the year.
