Welcome to Symposium Books


Happy spring!

While the winter weather was keeping us all indoors as much as possible, we were busy at both our Providence and East Greenwich stores adding a huge amount of new material.  There’s far too much to list here, but in a nutshell, virtually every section has seen new arrivals from well over a dozen publishers, including Vintage, Random House, Fantagraphics, Drawn & Quarterly, Verso, NYRB, City Lights, Penguin, Princeton Architectural Press, and MIT Press, just to give you an idea.



We’re actively booking a variety of readings and other events at both stores for the spring and summer — check out what’s coming up via the links above.  We’re also continuing our regular sales and other promotions on Facebook, including a special Soldsie sale every Thursday.

As we continue to update the new website, be sure to keep up with other goings-on at the stores, book news, staff recommendations, event photos, bestseller lists, and more.  Also, please keep in mind that we now make it easy for you to browse our inventory at either location to see what’s on-hand in real-time — just click the “Browse Our Inventory” link above.
