That’s what Neil Gaiman wrote in American Gods: “What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore, it knows it’s not foolin’ a soul.”
Believe it or not, The Book Bungalow is one of the first bookstores in all of Southern Utah offering new books and all the events associated with literary life. We have wonderful libraries in St. George and surrounding communities, but even libraries can only do so much. There is a used bookstore in town that provides a valuable service, but it offers no opportunities to gather, to pull readers and writers together.
The Book Bungalow wants to do just that--serve as a meeting ground for book lovers and artists, as well as musicians and actors. We want to instill a love of reading and literature in our youngest citizens and watch them grow up and bring their own children to our store. We want to forge strong bonds within our own community and draw in residents of Santa Clara, Ivins, Washington, and beyond. Indeed, we aim to be the literary soul of Southern Utah.
