Visible Voice Books was founded with a simple mission - to provide the kind of bookstore experience that can't be had at the big box stores. As time has passed and the big box bookstores have risen to prominence, the experience of encountering books has changed. It's hard to wander around chain bookstores and make discoveries, meet new authors, encounter unexplored topics. That's what Visible Voice Books is all about - discoveries.
Visible Voice Books, opened in February 2007, is an independent bookstore with a community feel. Located in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, we offer hand-selected new and used books in a variety of topics, with store specialties including fiction, modern poetry, Beat and counterculture writers, political and current event writing, art and music books. A uniquely comprehensive and cutting edge selection of magazines is available, along with cards and literary gifts. Out-of-print, rare and antiquarian book ordering is also offered.
Free meeting space is available in the upstairs room or outdoor patio. Meetings of all kind are welcome - book clubs, writers' workshops, community groups, revolution-planners. As long as itís non-violent, every group and all people are welcome here. We also host special events at the store, including author visits and signings, events in conjunction with the monthly Tremont Art Walk, and readings by local authors and open mic poetry evenings. It's all part of our commitment to serving as an integral part of the thriving, diversely eclectic Tremont community.
