Nestled in Detroit’s historic Grandmont Rosedale neighborhood, Pages Bookshop is proud to serve the community through books, discussion events, and workshops. Owner Susan Murphy graduated from Northwestern University with a master’s in Library and Information Science and states that as a child, reading the Grapes of Wrath and Little Women had a big impact on her. She gets to know her customers on a personal level, and she orders books she believes they’ll enjoy. Also, a friendly cat named Pip greets all visitors.
Source Booksellers offers a unique selection of non-fiction books that enhance your life and lifestyle. Owner Janet Webster is a retired educator who worked for forty years for the Detroit Public Schools. Then she opened the shop in 1989. To keep up with demand, Janet moved to a larger location eleven years later and encourages everyone to come in and discover her hand-selected books.
Throughout the year, Source Booksellers also offers in-store book events and classes such as tai chi and chair yoga.
