Birmingham’s southside is home to a new used bookstore. Greencup Books is holding its official “grand opening” this Friday night. The doors open at 2pm with a reading/signing by Tony Crunk and artist Peter Wilm. They will be signing their joint publishing project Stories from Real Life.
Greencup Books sells mainly used books culled from collections and sales all over the South East. But there are a few new titles on hand too. Some from their own small-press imprint Absnth Inc. So that’s pretty cool too.
Don’t let the unassuming storefront fool you. Their shop, located at 105 Richard Arrington Blvd., next to Barehands Gallery, is crammed with used books and art. When the shades are up, you can see all their signs and displays in the windows as you drive by.
We’ll pass along their regular store hours as soon as the new shop settles into a routine.
