Four stores. Five floors. Three buildings. That’s the footprint of Square Books, a sprawling local bookstore located on the bustling Square in downtown Oxford, Mississippi. Their shelves are packed with books that’ll appeal to both literature lovers and those who haven’t picked up a novel since English class. Peruse their carefully curated selections ranging from literary classics to indie favorites to writings from up-and-coming Southern authors.
As Square Books opened in 1979 with a focus on Southern literature and Mississippi stories, they still focus on community building through a packed calendar of events. Join storytelling takeovers, book readings with authors, and celebrations of book-centric holidays like Independent Bookstore Day.
