Book Culture will be hosting a small number of events in 2023 at our 112th location in Manhattan.

For these events, the second floor may be partially closed to browsing at 7pm with limited access to the second floor. Please confirm with the listing what the registration requirements will be at the event. 

In addition, attendees are encouraged to wear a mask for the full duration of the event. Because of the limitations of our space, masks may be required for larger events and updated requirements will be posted.
