Founded in 1997 with three floors of books and media, Prospero’s Books is housed in a historic 1890 building in Kansas City, Missouri. The store hosts readings, book releases, and other performance events.
Binnacle specializes in used and new literature, poetry, literary nonfiction, political history, art, drama, philosophy, graphic novels, and children’s books. The shop can accommodate special orders, and is always looking to acquire quality used paperbacks in excellent condition.
The bookstore is a collaborative endeavor by four partners, who have collectively been writers, editors, musicians, producers, organizers, teachers, filmmakers, and booksellers.
Split Rock Books was founded in 2018 by Heidi and Michael Bender, a married couple. After over ten years working as booksellers (and in Michael’s case, as a librarian too!) in a variety of stores in New York City and beyond, they moved up to Cold Spring to open up their own store.
Split Rock carries a curated selection of new books with a focus on literary fiction and nonfiction, small presses, local interest and children’s books. The shop hosts a variety of children’s and family programming, book clubs, readings, signings and discussions.
