Blue Bicycle Books in Charleston, South Carolina

In early June, I traveled to Charleston for a work conference. If you’re wildly curious about what I do, you can watch a video created about one of my projects as part of the conference.

In addition to eating delicious food (Kaminsky’s coconut cream pie stands out in my memory!), I went to the locally owned book shop, Blue Bicycle Books.


In addition to a stellar collection of autographed books (I scored a signed bookplate in Kwame Alexander’s The Crossover!), BBB has friendly staff, a big poetry section and an interesting assortment of new and used books.

This is my friend, colleague, and fellow reader, Susan. I love the painted canvases! Fun craft idea!

Their children’s room has lots of kid appeal while offering some classic books and current bestsellers.


This fall, BBB will host “YALLFest!” a big young adult book festival. What a talent line-up!
