Auntie's Bookstore, whose mission is to educate, entertain and enlighten, is the festival's official bookseller. We encourage you to purchase books by festival authors directly from Auntie's, as not only will you be helping an independent bookstore to thrive, but 10% of sales for festival author books goes back to Get Lit!, so you're also helping the festival!
Auntie's Bookstore opened in 1978 in the Spokane Flour Mill under the name of "The Book and Game Company" and has been selling books ever since. Auntie's moved to its current location in the Liberty Building in 1994, located on the corner of Main and Washington. The store carries both new and used books, cards, t-shirts, Spokane specialty items and other gifts to bring home for yourself or your favorite bibliophile.
We are a full service independent bookstore! We offer bookstore credit for your gently used books, we hold events, signings, story time and so much more. Our booksellers love books and are looking forward to helping you find your next great read. If you're looking for a book and we don't have it in stock, we can get most orders in just a couple days.
