Tru Books Bookstore has been an integral part of the Greater Hartford community since 2002 , and has been the number one stop for anyone looking for books about Black people, written by Black and African American people.
Tru Books is not only a Bookstore it is a place to come to to express any schools of thought without pretention
Annual events are held throughout the year that cater to our community. There's the Talent Show, the Harlem Book Fair, the Block Party and the Halloween Bash. In April of 2013, we will be bringing a new twist to one of our annual events. Instead of the Teen Talent Show, we will be having our first Pee-Wee Talent Show for talent fourteen and under. We will also be introducing the Boys to Men 3-day Conference event for father's day weekend.
Our purpose here at TruBooks is to promote African American authors from a spectrum of literature, including children books, poetry, non-fiction and fiction; and to enrich the lives of our community by supplying knowledge for the brain and entertaining African American cultural celebrations for the spirit.
The Team over at TruBooks feel strongly that books play an instrumental role in the growth and development of youth, and provide plenty of enjoyment for many adults. Books are one of our greatest tools for stimulating the imagination. Whether you want to escape your everyday stresses or explore the realms of the unknown, books provide this means of liberation!
Purchase here online or stop by our store at 3155 Main Street in Hartford and let's continue to support the celebration of Black authors, from the new and upcoming writers, to the critically acclaimed.
We have another exciting year of annual events lined up for you, and for the members of our community; and to keep it all going, we're going to need your continued support.
Every dollar is appreciated, and every single dollar counts. Show you care. Make a donation right now.
