East Harlem's independent bookstore

Determined to have a place in East Harlem for books, authors and the community to come together – I began my adventure to open La Casa Azul in the Spring of 2006.For 5 years I have immersed myself in the book industry world. I have visited every bookstore possible, spoken to publishers, authors and bookstore owners.

There have been many highlights and some challenges. Several times I felt like walking away – but giving up felt worse than moving forward.

As I prepare to open La Casa Azul Bookstore, I look forward to many amazing experiences. I know that challenges will arise – but I am sure I won’t regret a single part of this adventure.

Thank you for believing in me, La Casa Azul Bookstore will finally have a home.
