Century Books in Pasadena opened its new Jane Austen Alcove on March 25 and the proprietors are donating a portion of the proceeds from Austen-related sales to JASNA Southwest. The store is located at 1039 E. Green Street. Phone is 626-344-6411.

Century Books is an independent used bookstore and art gallery at the newly designated landmark Green Street Village. The charming shop offers a wide array of books (both fiction and nonfiction) and regularly hosts events, including live jazz music, classical concerts, art openings, readings, lectures and literary events.

We hope you’ll pay them a visit next time you are in the vicinity, or that you may want to make a special trip just to visit the bookstore!
