Local used and specialty bookstores
Back Pages Books289 Moody Street, Waltham
When this independent new and used bookstore opened in Waltham in 2005, it was the first the town had seen in over 10 years. A frequent host to authors (including Junot Diaz, Robert Pinsky, and Samantha Power) and activists, the store has also recently opened Back Pages Publishers as a way to increase locally run book production and distribution.
