Big Blue Marble Bookstore


Founded by Sheila Allen Avelin in November 2005, Big Blue Marble is very much a reflection of its neighborhood - racially and economically diverse, politically engaged, funny, full of parents and grandparents looking for the best children's books, LOTS of writers, and quite a large LGBTQIA community, and within walking distance of three synagogues.  They stock books they love, and trust that their customers will recommend any great books they've missed.  They've always had writers on staff, who also keep them on their toes and connected to lesser known and up-and-coming authors.

Delivery Days: Tuesdays through Saturdays

Order Deadline: 7PM the day before
