Canterbury is an independent, locally-owned bookstore. Avol's is a general used, rare and out-of-print bookstore specializing in academic and scholarly books since 1980. The bookstore, an inviting place with cozy niches and comfortable chairs, features an eclectic array of titles personally selected by our booksellers, who are dedicated to featuring and recommending oft-unheralded titles easily overlooked in the aisles of a larger store.
Special attention is given to fiction, poetry, biography, local authors, small presses and children's literature. A unique area close by celebrates, shelf by shelf, recipients of the National Book Award, the Booker Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, the Pen/Faulkner Award and the Nobel Prize. The intimate children's corner is the site of weekly story hours in which booksellers and parents take turns reading their favorite picture books.
The Canterbury Inn Apartments are furnished apartments of varying sizes with elaborate murals, hand-painted details, lofty ceilings, skylights, built-in bookcases and tiled bathrooms with whirlpools. See website for more details and rental prices.
