The Harvard Book Store opened in 1932 and has served Cambridge’s students. It is independently owned and operated with no official Harvard University affiliation. Author Event Series spotlights household literary names, as well as up and coming stars, at reading and signing events all year. In 2002, our seventieth year of business, Harvard Book Store’s excellence in bookselling was recognized nationally when we were awarded Publishers Weekly’s Bookseller of the Year.
