After reading over fifty applications, forming two committees, hosting a handful of meetings, and having the difficult discussions readers always have when they have to choose their favorite book, we have reached our decisions.
Porter Square Books is proud to announce our 2019 Writers in Residence:
Writing for young readers: Kathryn Amato
We will begin accepting applications for the 2020 Writers in Residence on Tuesday, July 2.
Independent Bookstore day is Saturday April 28th. We’re still planning the fun so stay tuned for more information about the day’s events. Here are the IBD exclusives that will be available at Porter Square Books while supplies last.
The holidays are upon us and the rush to get the perfect book for everyone on your list is on. If you are ordering something for the holidays please let us know in the comments so we can prioritize your order. Here is more information about inventory statuses and online shopping for the holidays.
Porter Square Books is very lucky to be able to work with publishers and local authors to make signed books available to you. Here are some of the signed books coming out this Fall that you can preorder now.
Once again, we’ll be offering a bunch of bookish exclusive items on Independent Bookstore Day. Here’s what you’ll be able to get at PSB only on Saturday, April 29th. There will be limited supplies of all of these items and once they’re gone, they’re gone, so get here early.
The Sandmeyer Reaction by Michael Chabon
We used to know exactly what it meant to be a bookstore in Cambridge, MA. We stocked books, ordered books, talked about books, and hosted book events. We had responsibilities, we had an identity, and even though very little is easy about bookselling, we knew how to be a bookstore. But things changed. Regardless of your political opinions, we are now living in a different and more tumultuous world.
