You read that right! We’re turning 120! Can you believe that?!
It’s all due to the wonderful people that support us.

When you turn 120, you have to celebrate in a big way. Check out the list of events we have coming up the first week in November.

And if you haven’t checked out the Tumblr with the feature Humans of the Bookstore, then do that too! (http://vromansbookstore.tumblr.com/)

Vroman’s Chair Joel Sheldon and CEO/President Allison Hill will present an entertaining talk on Vroman’s Bookstore’s history from 1894 to the present.

Join Vroman’s Bookstore for our Author Dedication and Reception. Vroman’s will be breaking ground on our Author Walk of Fame with an inaugural dedication to local author Lisa See (Dreams of Joy, Shanghai Girls). She will be putting her handprints & signature in cement to be permanently placed on the walkway between Vroman’s Bookstore and the Laemmle. We have Grauman’s Theater’s very own cement artist Sassan Shakoori coming in to do the honors.
