We’re a small, independent bookstore nestled in the heart of downtown Chestertown. Since opening our doors in the fall of 2004, we’ve received accolades from What’s Up? Media and ranked #24 on visitmaryland.org’s Favorite Shopping Spots list. We’re also proud co-founders of the annual Kent County Poetry Festival—now twelve years strong—and host various authors for annual events like Downrigging Weekend, National Music Festival, A Dickens of a Christmas, and Harry Potter Festival.
(In fact, it’s to Harry Potter in particular that we owe an early period of our growth. Like Mr. Potter, we began our journey in what was little more than a closet under the stairs; it was the sale of one rare copy which enabled us to expand outwards, and the outpouring of support from our friends and patrons which have nurtured our continued growth into the present-day, labyrinthine Bookplate that you know.)
