Hello! I’m Beth

My memories of Downtown start with my mother. She opened a bookstore on 2nd Street in the fall of 1974. She quickly outgrew that space and moved her store to the Vinson Square Building on First Street the following year. The Curiosity Bookstore was a neat place, and it was a place I enjoyed. I’m excited to be following in my mom’s footsteps by owning my own bookstore. In fact, I’m also following in the footsteps of other family members who’ve had businesses in Downtown Rogers since the early 1900’s. Brick Lane Books was designed to be a hub of storytelling and a home for books, local art, music, and conversation. We hope that our indoor and outdoor space provides an experience- a place where people can connect and belong. We look forward to seeing you soon.
