Bookish: An Indie Shop For Folks Who Read opened its doors in August 2018. Our location nestled inside Fort Smith’s Bakery District focuses on local authors, small presses, a curated selection of new fiction, non fiction, and children’s titles. We work to create children’s programming that is engaging, educational, and open to all ages, offer a variety of book clubs and specialty events, and are always ready to talk to you about what we’re reading! We are Fort Smith’s only independent bookstore that focuses on new titles and author events, and our curated selection reflects the interests of our community. Bookish is a member of the American Bookseller Association, the Fort Smith Downtown Business Association, the Fort Smith Chamber of Commerce, and the Southern Independent Bookseller Alliance.
