@twentystoriesla is our [mobile] indie bookstore of the month! You can buy the two #belletristbook picks for July at 20% off using code: Belle20 on their website! Twenty Stories is an independent mobile bookstore operated out of a renovated 1987 vintage van. Each month the two owners, Alexa Trembly and Emory Harkins, curate twenty new book titles in the genres of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, as well as literary and cultural magazines.The book selection values innovative and emerging writers and presses, as well as established authors in the literary community. The teal bookmobile pops-up in a new location five days a week and can be located with their online schedule, updated weekly, on their website and social media platforms. The bookshop was established in 2017 in Los Angeles, California and since then has made its way across the country to its new home in Providence, Rhode Island. In the fall of 2018, Twenty Stories will open a brick-and-mortar in Pawtucket, RI, which will be based on the same twenty-book concept, but will also stock previous months' book selections. The new store will host readings, workshops, and community events with local writers and artists.
After meeting Tomos Lewis, a reporter at Monocle Magazine, while selling books on the streets of Los Angeles, Twenty Stories was featured in the magazine's podcast The Urbanist. Listen to episode 322 to hear more!
