Why Literary Hub?

Literary Hub is for readers, writers, booksellers—everyone who loves books and literature. In a balkanized landscape of big houses, indies, journals and bloggers clamoring for attention from an increasingly distracted audience, Literary Hub is a much-needed organizing principle in the service of literary culture.

Shop at Your Local Bookstore

Literary Hub is for people who can’t pass by a bookstore window without stopping. The nation’s brick-and-mortar booksellers are a rich literary resource, on the frontlines of the reader-writer relationship. If we don’t spend money in our bookstores, we risk losing them; we risk losing the pleasure of discovery, the random encounter with great work that challenges our preconceptions, sometimes changes our lives. Walk into a bookstore, talk to a bookseller, discover something new.
