BookPeople is one of the great remaining independent book stores in the country. It is known for bringing in big names for book signings and photo ops (yes, that’s me with Bruce Springsteen, and if you haven’t read his memoir Born to Run, I highly recommend it!). BookPeople has books, gifts, cards, and a coffee shop – pretty much everything you would want with a local vibe thrown in. It’s a 5 minute drive or a 25 minute walk from the Convention Center.
