About Us

Auntie's Bookstore is Spokane's literary landmark! 

We are a full-service independent bookstore that carries both new and used books, greeting cards, t-shirts, Spokane specialty items and other gifts to bring home for yourself or your favorite bibliophile. 

We offer bookstore credit for your gently used books.  We hold events, signings, and so much more! Our booksellers love books and are looking forward to helping you find your next great read. If you're looking for a book and we don't have it in stock, we can get most orders in just a few days.

Our managers can be contacted via email: 


If you are an author and would like to see your book on our shelves or discuss consignment arrangements,
please read this page first: Stock Requests and Consignments.
Then, send your request to Kerry Mayer.


To schedule an event at the store or to request that Auntie's provide books for sale during an out of store author event, please contact our Events Coordinator: 

Please be aware that we receive many event requests. If you are a local (Spokane-based) or regional (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, or Montana) author that is unsure if we stock your book in-store, you can call 509-838-0206 to inquire. A book title must be stocked in our store to consider an event request. 

To ensure that we are able to accommodate a mutually beneficial request and event during an author's time in town, we advise that inquiries about our calendar be submitted at least 2-3 months in advance.
