Welcome to Skylark Bookshop, a new bookshop in the heart of downtown Columbia, MO. We’re thrilled that you’re here.
Columbia is a fabulously bookish town. We are a city of super-smart readers, home to three universities, a freakishly large collection of talented writers and poets, and the Unbound Book Festival, a free-to-the-public literary festival that takes place every April. We look forward to becoming part of this exciting literary landscape. We opened our doors on Saturday, August 25.
In addition to selling books, we hope to become a community resource, a place where people can engage with like-minded folks in discussions about literature. We’ll be bringing acclaimed authors into town for readings and signings, hosting bookclubs, and lots of other good stuff. Our next author event is on October 4 at 7:00 P.M. when YA author Tiffany Jackson will be in town to discuss her work.
All the best –
Alex George and Carrie Koepke
