When it comes to bookstores, this place defines class. Not only can you browse books while sipping wine, but the staff recommendations are usually just what you want them to be: varied and idiosyncratic. Catch young area writers here the third Thursday of every month at Local Author Night, and be sure to check the website for the shop's full list of literary events!
