About Us

Magic City Books is an independent bookstore owned by the Tulsa Literary Coalition, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. We are located in the Archer Building on the corner of Archer and Detroit in the vibrant Tulsa Arts District in downtown Tulsa.  We specialize in literary and popular fiction and narrative nonfiction for adults. We also offer carefully curated sections for children and teens.

You can expect to receive personalized service from knowledgeable staff who love to read. We want Magic City Books to be your “third place,” the place besides home and work where you feel most comfortable. Come visit us, attend a literary program or author event, and get to know our staff.

Magic City Books is the home of Booksmart Tulsa, which has been presenting author events for almost a decade in Tulsa. Smaller events will be in our beautiful Algonquin Room, and we will continue to collaborate with other venues in the community for larger events. 

When you make a purchase from Magic City Books you are doing something good for your community. Profits from our store help fund our programs, so in addition to helping the local economy, you are contributing to the cultural life of Tulsans.

To be considered for either an event or book placement in our store, authors can now complete the Inventory/Event Form.
