[words] Bookstore proudly celebrates its 15th anniversary this Saturday, January 20, 2024!

Some may remember that Maplewood residents Jonah and Ellen Zimiles opened [words] on January 20, 2009 during the financial crisis with twin missions:  to provide a literary and community hub in the town and to create a vocational program for adults with autism.  [words] has survived Hurricane Sandy, Covid, a second financial crisis, several floods, and so much more.  Nonetheless, [words] has been recognized as one of the top five independent bookstores in the country by Publishers Weekly for Bookstore of the Year, hosted approximately 1000 author events, and provided jobs and vocational training to over 150 individuals with autism.  

This community has always lovingly supported [words] and its twin missions.  As a thank you to its customers, on Saturday January 20, [words] will be providing a 15% discount off all items purchased in the store, serving goodies, and celebrating all visitors who enter the store.  

Jonah, Ellen, Liz, and Daniel Zimiles and the entire marvelous [words] Bookstore team thank this community for its continued support and love of reading!
