The Ivy Bookshop

About Us

The Ivy Bookshop is a family-owned, independent bookseller–one of fifty indie booksellers nationally that contribute to The New York Times Best Sellers and Indie Best Sellers Lists. The Ivy has been a fixture at Falls Road and Lake Avenue for over a decade, and we are thrilled to make our second home in Charles Village.

Offering the best in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, Bird in Hand is both a place for you to browse our carefully curated selection and to meet local and national writers of note. We hold events nearly every week, and all upcoming events for both Bird in Hand and The Ivy Bookshop can be viewed here: http://www.theivybookshop.com/upcomingeventfeatured

Please don’t hesitate to stop by the store with any questions, suggestions or customer service needs. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist you! They can also be reached at bookseller@birdinhandcharlesvillage.com
