Merchant Monday’s: Second Star to the Right Books
Posted on July 5, 2022
Happy Merchant Monday! Today we’re featuring Second Star to the Right Books, located at 1455 S Pearl St. Second Star to the Right is a Denver Indie Bookstore offering books, toys, and events catered to children and young adults.
After working as an elementary school teacher for twelve years, Dea Lavoie opened her doors in November 2014. Her goal was to provide an atmosphere, and safe space, for children to explore a wide range of inclusive books and toys with the opportunity to explore. Their brand new location, after moving this spring, provides even more opportunities for children to explore with the addition of their story time and toy rooms! From elementary school all the way to young adults, Second Star provides books for all reading and maturity levels. Not only does Second Star sell books, they host many events from author visits to children’s birthday parties! Dea is extremely involved with the local community and has a passion for supporting children, education, and acceptance.
As a former teacher, giving back to the local schools is extremely important to Dea. From discounts for teachers to hosting book drives and donating books, she has given back to the same community that has supported Second Star so much. In addition to Colorado readers, Second Star also is very supportive of local Colorado authors! You can find many books written by authors within our local communities lining the shelves.
Dea is constantly getting new inventory on a weekly basis so make sure to always stop by when you come to South Pearl St. If you don’t see the title you’re looking for, ask the incredible staff! They can special order specific books or pre-order ones that are about to be released!
