A local bookstore isn’t merely a place to buy books. Books are more than a consumable material – they exist to be discovered, deliberated, and discussed. The Book Tavern provides an environment to explore and engage books through author readings, poetic discussions, art shows, and the weekly children’s event, “Super Awesome Story Time”. The Book Tavern is a community-focused store and considers it an honor to steward the intellectual and literary achievements to our town.
From humble pulp fiction to Pulitzer Prize winners, to the coloring book and the art monograph, the latest political rant to the heights of academia, The Book Tavern serves as both bridge and guide. The Augusta community informs us, even as we shepherd them to just the right book, with constant discussion and joyful explorations of authors and the knowing they bring readers through their art. We look forward to talking with you and hope you find community with us in Augusta.
