SA has some great used bookstores, but when it comes to new titles,
especially from small presses, head to the Twig. A favorite stop off for
visiting writers, The Twig provides discerning readers of all ages with
fiction, poetry, and non-fiction classics and new releases, paying
special attention to Texas authors and presses — their expanding Texana
collection is not to be missed. Check their calendar for book signings
by national names and local favorites. Children are appreciated too;

The Twig Book Shop began its evolution in 1972. Currently located at the former Pearl Brewery on the Museum Reach of the Riverwalk, The Twig provides newly released books for children and adults as well as award-winning classics. The space at Pearl has become a venue for local and national poets and authors. The Twig makes books available for book clubs, schools, and conferences. The Texana collection makes The Twig a destination for history lovers near and far.
