Founded in South Florida by Mitchell Kaplan in 1982, Books & Books expanded their highly respected, independent bookstores to Camana Bay. Books & Books has become a haven for book-lovers across Cayman.
The shop holds regular literary events, such as the International Visiting Author Series, sponsored by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism and Sunshine Suites Resort, and has hosted acclaimed authors such as Michael Ondaatje, Salman Rushdie, Alexander McCall Smith, Candace Bushnell and Jamaican poet Lorna Goodison.
The store also hosts a weekly Story Time for its youngest readers every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:30am. Poetry lovers won’t want to miss Floetry at 7pm on the third Wednesday of every month; a special night of words and wisdom, poetry and people. The Bookends Club meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7pm to share their insights and impressions of the month’s read.
