Book Suey

Maria Montoya '21, Co-founder

Book Suey is a cooperatively owned and democratically run bookstore that provides access to books, connection to local writers and publishers, and meaningful conversation in a safe and welcoming environment. We bring together a diverse community of members and residents to share in reading experiences and learn from one another. We seek to transform the things we sell into ideas, connections, and relationships that form the foundation of vibrant communities.

We started Book Suey in 2017 to help reimagine the relationship between places, spaces, people, business, and community. We are a cooperative business, a community driven operation owned and supported by members and motivated by community value rather than profit. For the time being, we operate from within Bank Suey as a part-time tenant of the community space.
