Independent bookstores are not just physical spaces to house books. They anchor communities. They house real people and ideas, stories of love and hope, pain and loss, failure and redemption and any emotion and circumstance that can be imagined or experienced. Their fuel is a belief in the written word. They take care of people. Rebel Heart Books is eclectic, intentional and lovingly curated.
You may notice when you enter our store that there are no category labels. Before we opened, we visited NYC and walked into a gem of a bookstore called Three Lives & Company not much bigger than our 625 sq. ft.. Because it had no category designations, we found books that we might otherwise have missed in our normal rush to head to “our” section. Challenging yourself to look past a label (or cover) embodies the spirit of Rebel Heart Books. We invite you to have that same experience. If you find that you’d prefer a guide though, we’re always here to help.
