City of Asylum Books is Almost Here
City of Asylum Books @ Alphabet City is an independent bookstore specializing in works in translation and world literature. We carry over 7000 titles for adults and children. We are dedicated to offering a geographically and linguistically diverse collection of translations from many genres: literature, poetry, history, travel, cookbooks, and children’s literature.
City of Asylum Books will also feature:
- Complete collections of some of the most prominent publishers of translated literature, including: New York Review of Books, Archipelago Books, Dalkey Archive, New Directions, along with many others
- A robust children’s section dedicated to promoting diverse authors and stories
- A weekly Saturday morning story hour for children
- A cookbook section (my personal favorite) featuring gorgeously produced regional and ethnic cookbooks from all over the world

The bookstore is committed to furthering City of Asylum’s mission of giving voice and promoting cross-cultural exchange. We hope you will visit with an open mind and an open heart.
