Belletrist celebrates great books and the people who read them.

Every month, Belletrist features a different book and a favorite independent bookstore, both chosen by Emma Roberts + Karah Preiss.

The EndWe Start From

by Megan Hunter

The End We Start From is a gorgeous and haunting tale of one mother’s fight for her and her child’s life after London is completely submerged under water in a catastrophic flood. It is an artfully crafted story of survival that challenges the reader to consider a world where all sense of familiarity is gone. We highly recommend it.

Featured Bookstore of the Month

Emma + Karah like to call Harbor Books “the clubhouse” because of its unique place in their lives as not only an important community bookstore, but also a place where they can sit, talk, drink too much caffeine and be surrounded by the things they love most in the world: physical books. It is for these reasons (and the fact that the bathrooms are lined with pages from classic fiction) that Harbor Books is our inaugural “Bookstore of The Month.” While you might not be able to visit Harbor Books in real life, we wanted to feature it so that you can get to know the many institutions that make up the great American bookstore landscape!
