The SoHo store is known for books, but more for robust programming, particularly lectures and book clubs. The store's Espresso Book Machine helps writers self-publish for a fee. The menu of the charming on-site cafe even features literary quotes for each item.

A good, broad selection is the main attraction here, but the SoHo store also is known for robust programming, particularly lectures and book clubs. The store's whirring Espresso Book Machine helps writers self-publish (for a fee). The menu of the charming on-site cafe even features literary quotes for each item.
