Traveling Books

In recent months, I have posted stories on two traveling bookshops in France, now I have found one in Charleston, South Carolina. Itinerant Literate Books is the brainchild of partners Christen Thompson Lain and Julia Turner. The pair met while studying at the University of Denver Publishing Institute and discovered that they both shared the dream of owning a bookshop. With retail rental space being at a premium, they decided to outfit an old travel trailer as as mobile bookstore. For almost three years now, they have towed Itinerant Literate Books to festivals, block parties, breweries, coffeehouses, and book fairs as a pop-up store. With shelf space so limited, they continually work on curating the book selection and of course do special orders.
