Blue Heron Books
Two-time winner of The Libris Award (Best Bookstore in Canada) and named as a favourite by the legendary Stuart McLean, Blue Heron Books is like a warm hug for book lovers of all ages. You'll adore this welcoming independent bookstore located in historic downtown Uxbridge.
Community Hub & Great Books
The unpretentious atmosphere of Blue Heron Books with its comfy chairs, wood shelving, and creaky floors lends itself to a long, slow, browsing session. However, under that sleepy atmosphere vibrates a strong pulse.
The store has a quaint, old-fashioned look with an up-tempo vibe because there is always something happening!
In its storied, thirty-plus-year history, Blue Heron Books has played host to and continues to showcase a veritable who’s who of the world’s literary community.
Blue Heron's Literary Events
Even throughout the COVID shutdowns Blue Heron Books owner Shelley Macbeth has continued to host an outstanding series of author events.
Upcoming events include: Miriam Toews in conversation with Shelagh Rogers, Colson Whitehead in conversation with Elamin Abdelmahmoud, An Evening With Jonathan Franzen, and An Evening with David A Robertson.
