Common Places - S


Communal Places for Literary Enthusiasts

S   Modestly self-proclaimed as a “general bookstore,” Skylight Books in the historic Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles is all that and so much more.  Curated literary selections range from fiction and children’s books to California history, social science, art, music, and movies. Their events program is nationally recognized and features prominent touring authors and local favorites and debuts. You can also become a Friend with Benefits member or join the Signed First Edition Club. But, wait! There’s more. They even offer book bouquets for children’s birthdays and a bouquet of poetry books for Poetry Month.

  1. This is not too far from where I live. But far enough and too much of a hassle for me to go there. Especially if they expect you to wear a mask. Hope they stay in business for years to come.

    1. Hi Lee!

      I chose this place with you in mind ;-) Though I didn't have any idea how close it might be to you. Two others with the letter S either didn't survive the shutdown or haven't yet re-emerged.
      I'm especially glad you stopped by for this one!
