Porter Square Books: Boston Edition is a welcoming space to gather with your neighbors, linger over books, read with your kids, chat with booksellers, and feel a part of your community. We want to provide the resources this neighborhood needs, so whether it’s an event series, space for a book club, regular story hour, or something else, we’d be happy to work with you to make it happen.
Porter Square Books: Boston Edition and GrubStreet will host a wide range of literary events for all ages of readers and all interests, featuring nationally recognized as well as local authors.
Once everyone is comfortable with indoor gatherings, we’ll host a monthly book club run by the store, as well as provide space for community members to host their own. With staff picks, curated displays, a great selection, and knowledgeable booksellers, we look forward to being your happy place to experience the world of books.
Shopping with us also supports GrubStreet, one of the nation's leading creative writing centers. By rigorously developing voices of every type and talent and by removing barriers to entry, GrubStreet fosters the creation of meaningful stories and ensures that excellent writing remains vital and relevant, here in Boston and beyond.
We are happy to work with businesses to bring authors for book talks at company offices and facilitate bulk purchases of books (whether or not in connection with an author visit). We work with many publishers to specifically identify upcoming titles - especially from Boston area authors - that may be of interest to our corporate partners, and are always glad to lend our expertise to suggest authors of both new and not-so-new books.
