Birmingham is getting a new bookstore downtown! Today, Homewood’s Little Professor bookshop announced they are opening a second location at 2807 2nd Ave. South, in Pepper Place, this year.
They said they’ve been on the lookout for “an experimental space” in which to set up a new concept for them. They plan on having a coffee bar, light cafe fare and cocktails to offer during events and throughout the day, alongside all of their books and magazines.
Sipping a cocktail while looking for a good read? Sign me up!
On August 27th, from 8am-12pm, you can get a taste of what they have planned during their first “pop up” shop. They’re hoping to tap into the crowds and community vibe of the Pepper Place Farmer’s Market as they test out their ideas and begin outfitting their space.
I’m very excited about another bookstore opening downtown. It’s going to be fun to follow along and see what the folks at Little Professor have planned. Here’s a photo tour of what their Homewood space looked like back in 2017 when they opened and you can read their full statement here about their new Pepper Place location.

This is exciting because here in the “other” Birmingham, we have a new indie bookshop (the Heath Bookshop) opening next month! https://www.facebook.com/theheathbookshop Hope this one is as lovely!
I love the story of how that shop got started! “Great minds…” and all that. Hope they’re off to a good start and that all is well with you across the pond.
