Rozzie Bound, an independent bookstore offering new and used books across a variety of genres, will debut as a monthly pop-up shop in Roslindale, Mass., next month. The pop-up is a collaboration between writer and educator Roy Karp and bookseller Tom Nealon, who previously owned the Pazzo Books locations in Roslindale and West Roxbury.
The pop-up shop will reside in Turtle Swamp Brewing's Roslindale Beer Hall on Roslindale Square, and opening is set for the weekend of December 21. Rozzie Bound will sell general-interest books for all ages, in categories like literature, history, current affairs and YA. And while Rozzie Bound will begin as a pop-up, Karp and Nealon told Universal Hub that they hope to eventually open a permanent location on Roslindale Square, which has not had a bookstore since 2011.
