Hey y'all! Black Garnet Books is a Black, woman-owned bookstore located in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Our shelves are primarily stocked with Adult and YA contemporary literature by Black and racially-diverse authors.
We aim to introduce everyone to underrepresented voices and stories, new and old, that support and affirm the cultures they're connected to. Store founder, Dionne Sims, has curated her favorite books below, as well as titles she's excited to read and/or get into your hands! If you're looking for a specific book that's not on any of the lists, you can search for it in the search bar above, and proceeds from your purchase will support the bookstore as well (as long as you see our logo in the top-left corner of the page)!
Stay connected with us through our social media, or by subscribing to emails via our website. Thanks for your support, and hope to see y'all soon!
