I have been speaking with the folks from the Harvard Book Store and they do have a Somerville Connection. Here is a press release about an exciting event that is going to be right here in Somerville!
Harvard Book Store Warehouse Weekends: Four Weekends of Books, Culture & Community Local Voices: Small Presses and Literary Journals

We know you value local. We know you make it a point to shop at independent businesses, attend neighborhood events, support community organizations and champion area artists.
That’s why we’re such good friends.
That’s also why you’re invited to join us this fall for Harvard Book Store’s Warehouse Weekends where local is the name of the game. We’ve asked dozens of our favorite community cohorts to help us celebrate our collective ind(ie)pendence with bargain books, free samples, contests, workshops and more! For four consecutive weekends this fall, our 6500 sq. ft. warehouse in Somerville will feature chapbook giveaways, consultations with literary editors, zine workshops, bookbinding demonstrations, Instagram scavenger hunts, and more. Add to that 25,000 books and delicious, locally-sourced food and you’ve got yourself a party.
Each weekend will feature a different theme. This weekend’s theme showcases a variety of literary journals and small press books.
Warehouse Weekends will feature a unique set of local partners and activities including: AGNI, American Association of Variable Star Observers, Athena Mae, The Baffler, Boston Comics Roundtable, Boston Review, Cambridge Science Festival, Cervena Barva Press, Fugu, Harvard Review, Ibbetson Street Press, Inman Review, Kickass Cupcakes, MBTA Gifts, Million Year Picnic, MotherJuice, Papercut Zine Library, Ploughshares, Pressbound, Pressed Wafer, Q’s Nuts, Rose Metal Press, Rye House Press, Sabertooth Bakery, Salamander, Scoopsies Ice Cream, Small Beer Press, Somerville Arts Council, Taco Party, Taza Chocolate, Ward Maps, Wilderness House Press, Zephyr Press, Zymbol
Our Warehouse is located on Park St. in Somerville, between Somerville Ave. and Beacon St. not too far from Union Square. The closest T stop is Porter Square, on the Red Line, and bus lines #83 and #87 have stops on Somerville Ave. near Park St.
And unlike at most parties… friends of friends are definitely encouraged to bring friends! See you there!
