Publishers Weekly named Literati Bookstore its 2019 Bookstore of the Year on March 28.
Literati was announced in February as one of five finalists for the award, which honors independent bookstores nominated by those in the book industry. The award will be presented to owners Hilary and Michael Gustafson at BookExpo on May 30 in New York City.
Literati recently celebrated its six-year anniversary of being in business — it opened on March 31, 2013. Since then, the independent bookstore has made a name for itself with its public typewriter, cafe and the number of literary events it hosts.
