Books Are Magic was born in May 2017 and is home to exciting new releases and beloved classics, hidey-holes for children and books to read in them, gumballs filled with poetry, readings and panels almost every night of the week and storytimes on the weekends, and yes, plenty of magic.

Emma Straub and Michael Fusco-Straub live and work in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, and Books Are Magic is their third child. Their two sons are very excited about the new addition to the family. You can read more about Emma's books here, and see more of Michael's design work here
