Neighborhood Favorites, Books are Magic
Books Are Magic, a new Cobble Hill gem on Smith Street, is our neighborhood go-to for discovering new authors or picking up the classics. Brooklyn based novelist Emma Straub opened the space earlier this year with her husband, Michael, as a literary hub for locals and travelers alike. With a sign next to the register saying, "Are you a local Brooklyn author? Please identify yourself so that we can make sure to carry your book," they are an inclusive space that engages with the community that it calls home. Don't forget to check out the packed schedule of almost daily events!
