Three Rooms Press LOVES indie bookstores. They are places of community, where booklovers gather to hear favorite authors, explore new titles, and learn more about the wealth of incredible literature, memoirs, biographies, and reference books that fill the Indies’ shelves. Because indie bookstores are so near and dear to our hearts, we’re shining the spotlight on some of our favorites, with a monthly interview with the people who run them. Have a suggestion for a bookstore we should feature? Please let us know! Email us at and we’ll check it out. Most importantly–please join us in supporting indie bookstores by checking out the ones in your neighborhood. PRO TIP: To find a bookstore near you and go to the wonderful Indie Bound website, type in your zip code and you’ll pull up a map with locations of bookstores near you. Or type in the name of a book you’re trying to find, and you’ll get a list of nearby bookstores you can order from. Check it out–very cool!
