The Literate Lizard Story:
In a digital age where brick-and-mortar bookstores are closing regularly under pressure from online sales and e-books, it is still essential to have a physical bookstores in each community where people can gather and share knowledge, ideas and their love of reading in person. This bookstore was founded for that reason. We realized with our passion of the written word and the need for a physical venue, we could make that happen in our community of Sedona.
We provide something that Amazon cannot: by giving personal service, live events and a carefully chosen selection of reading material. The Literate Lizard welcomes Sedona’s residents and visitors of all ages to experience a personal connection with other readers and to reconnect with real books. Nothing can replace sitting in a cozy armchair with a warm beverage while soaking in the smell and feel of a real book. Our comforting and inclusive indie bookstore contributes to the unique culture and positive vibes that only Sedona can offer.
