Welcome to Longfellow Books

Upcoming Events!

April 28th


Join us at Longfellow Books on Saturday, April 28th for the family event of the year!  Two of our favorite Maine author/illustrators will help us celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with our second “Scott Nash vs Chris Van Dusen Draw-Off!”  Scott and Chris, both longtime friends of each other and Longfellow Books, will test their drawing skills, answer questions about their process of creating and, of course, sign all your books!

We can’t think of a better way to kick off Independent Bookstore Day than watching these two illustrator/writers go head-to-head in a no holds barred draw-off (friendly…of course). So please join us at 9 AM on Saturday, April 28th for a unique interactive experience with two of Maine’s most beloved children’s book authors/illustrators.

Longfellow News

Please join us on the first friday of each month at 7PM for community night at Longfellow Books. We have become disturbed by the policies being enacted by the new administration, and feel strongly that, if nothing else, we need to provide a space for all in our community to come together and work to reverse some of these trends. Read on for more details, and we look forward to seeing you Friday night.

To that end, we will be keeping the store open every First Friday from 7- 9 PM, for community use.  We will supply postcards and stamps free of charge for anyone wishing to reach out to our elected officials either at the federal or local level. We will have tables and chairs out for people to meet and share ideas, organize, etc.  

If you represent a group that would like to have a representative present to speak or distribute materials, please contact us.  

One important note--we’re happy to have all political viewpoints join in this very important conversation. Debate and disagreement are the hallmarks of our society. But so are respect and decency, inclusion and love. We will not tolerate messages or actions of hatred and discrimination in our store, in our community, or in our country. 

In Books We Trust,
The Longfellow Books Family
