About Us

vro_logo_medVroman’s Bookstore is Southern California’s oldest and largest independent bookstore.  We have been independently owned since 1894.  Serving the Southern California literary community and the Pasadena area specifically, we host over 300 events a year and support local charities with our Vroman’s Gives Back program.  At our two locations, we have an extensive selection of books, magazines, gifts, stationery, and fine writing instruments.

In 2008, we received the highest honor a bookstore can be given when we were named Publishers Weekly’s Bookseller of the Year.

This is our blog, where you can come for the latest literary news, recommended reads, author interviews, and much, much more.  Thanks for reading, and if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to drop us a line.
