As the birthplace of F. Scott Fitzgerald, St. Paul takes pride in keeping its vibrant literary reputation alive. Local celebrity and host of A Prairie Home Companion Garrison Keillor made his contribution with this cozy little store, hidden in the quaint, tree-lined Cathedral Hill neighborhood. Though Keillor himself is rarely there, there are plenty of regularly scheduled readings and signings by local and national authors. The shop beckons bibliophiles seeking personalized attention, whether on the hunt for “classic American literature” or “quality trash,” as the shop’s signs advertise. Cozy up with your new read on a vintage couch at Nina’s Coffee Cafe, the bright, open eatery upstairs.
