Featured Bookstore of the Month:
Magic City Books
Nearly a decade ago, Jeff Martin started putting together author events at different venues around his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Even while hosting literary stars like Salman Rushdie, Elizabeth Gilbert, Stephen King, and David Sedaris he never dreamed at the time that it would lead to a new independent bookstore. Last month, Magic City Books opened in the heart of the Tulsa Arts District, filling an obvious need and a multi-year gap for the city when it comes to an indie bookstore. All proceeds from the shop (books, wine, beer, coffee) support the mission of the bookstore's nonprofit parent organization, the Tulsa Literary Coalition. Acclaimed writers including Ann Patchett, Michael Chabon, and Jonathan Franzen sit on the organization's Board of Advisors. The staff and supporters of Magic City Books believe that a strong literary community is as important as museums, symphonies, and other spokes on the cultural wheel.
