I Am Books
Located aptly in the heart of the North End, I AM Books is considered the country’s first Italian-American bookstore. Referred to as an “Italian American cultural hub,” I AM offers fiction and nonfiction by Italian-American authors, carrying books in Italian and English, bilingual literature, as well as guides for people looking to pick up the language. The store also features an array of Italian cookbooks and a couple times a month, I AM hosts Italian-American authors and musicians. Make sure to purchase a bottle of olive oil on your way out!
