Blue Bicycle Books
420 King St. Downtown.
There are bookstores that sell books, and then there are bookstores that serve as a forum for a community's intellectual dialogue. Blue Bicycle Books does both. Run by Jonathan Sanchez, a frequent contributor to the City Paper, Blue Bicycle (ne Boomer's) regularly hosts readings, poetry workshops, children's events, and more. You can also find out the latest in news about poets, more than you thought possible in the Holy City. Located on Upper King Street along with high-end restaurants and fashionable wine shops, Blue Bicycle, by its very presence, makes the case that being well-read doesn't mean you're not among the hip and trendy.
