About The Novel Neighbor:

A charming, independent bookstore housed in a unique community space filled with work from local artists, The Novel Neighbor is an endeavor that’s been taking shape throughout my entire life. Raised in the close-knit city of Bardstown, Kentucky—just south of Louisville—I discovered early on the value of reading, art, and gathering as a neighborhood. And I’m thrilled to bring that energy and connectedness to Webster Groves, MO, a suburb of St. Louis.

The Novel Neighbor is a unique concept and space that carries new adult and childrens’ books, unique works from local artists (including our own “artist(s) in residence”). We offer an amazing community space for book clubs, classes, author events, after-school activities, tastings, parties, showers, and more! We also, include cozy areas for reading – and a fantastic kids’ section with plenty of materials for little ones (and those grown) to read, experience, and explore.
