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; Miss Anastasia’s Storytime offers Friday morning activities for little ones.
