Pearl's Books

Attention readers: There is a new independent book store just off the square in Fayetteville, and you must check it out. 

  • Reading together: Two NWA natives who love books and their community opened the doors to Pearl’s Books this past week and are so excited for the opportunity to foster a reading community. 
  • Growth through books: The owners of Pearl’s Books had a dream to open a book store last year during the pandemic and made it happen after a lot of learning, which is what they hope to inspire with their new space.
