Bookends & Beginnings

in North Shore Suburbs

Its hidden alley location gives this Evanston bookshop a magical feel, and inside the wonders continue: a deceptively tiny storefront unexpectedly expands far back inside with tables and shelves stacked with new and used tomes, as well as treasures such as author-inspired teas.

An expansive children's section boasts books in multiple languages, educational toys and a vintage sofa perfect for impromptu story time.
