About The Word Bookstore

Located in downtown Montreal, near McGill University campus, this tiny bookstore opened its doors in 1975. Still owned and operated by its founder Adrian King-Edwards, now with son Brendan and partner Donna Jean-Louis, the shop has been a haven for poets, students, philosophers, and readers for decades. The Word specializes in literature, philosophy, poetry, and collectible children's books. Antiquarian books, first editions, and collectibles can be viewed by appointment.
