Founded in 2021 by brothers Sam and Adam Morris, Your Brother’s Bookstore brings a family-friendly, cozy little shop to downtown Evansville. We sell new books, board games, gaming gear, rare and signed books, as well as works from local authors and artists.
As younger men, we both moved away from Evansville in search of bigger and cooler places to live. Adam spent a decade living in New York City and Sam moved around a lot while in the Air Force. Both of us found ourselves homesick very quickly and, by complete coincidence, moved back to Evansville within about a month of each other.
While talking about how Evansville has grown and changed since before leaving, the brothers decided they wanted to help contribute to the growing culture of art and community that they noticed developing downtown. While away, both of us found homes away from home in small, independent bookstores. We decided we wanted to create the same experience in downtown Evansville.
When you’re downtown, come see us, claim a chair, and curl up with a good book. Come to our book clubs, signings, and poetry readings. We look forward to seeing you.
Keep an eye out in the near future for information about programs we’ll be offering! We’re planning several book clubs, board game nights, some great panels, classes, and a few more secret, way too ambitious projects that we’re going to try.
