The book clubs, small-press titles and award-winning kids section tell only part of the story at Coolidge Corner’s indie mainstay. The knowledgeable staffers here handwrite literary recommendations that adorn the bookshelves, and the visiting author series is bursting with talent—like Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk, who makes an appearance this month. A carefully curated gifts section and a basement chock-full of used titles firmly close the book on the e-reader debate.
