"Bookstore" fails to relate what this establishment actually is. Sure they sell books, host events, and everything a bookstore is known to do but they are are a mission driven, community resource. The slogan "Knowledge is Key" says it all! The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and conscious, definitely worth a visit -- especially during an event.

The atmosphere of Sisters Uptown Bookstore is a form of retreat for the replenishing of the aching African mind. On all levels of need there is food to uplift one in a holistic manner befitting of the truly aware. Books, lectures, classes for children and visual and performance arts make this stop liberating to the point of being a microcosm of the beauties of Africa. It is a salute to the ancestors that adds dignity and positive vibrations to uptown and beyond. You have to love the staff and their mannerly and compassionate assistance. They are helpful, but unobtrusive. Your African thirst is well saturated at this river of tranquility and sustenance. It is an excursion you will recommend to others. I hope to see you there. Sincerely, Shadeed R. Ahmad

As someone who is really into hearing authors read from their own works, this is a great place to go for that. Plus, a lot of the authors that read here are local people who live in or around the city, which makes it that much better than a place like the big chain bookstores. The staff is also great at recommending books. There is also a kids room at this bookstore.

Sister's Uptown Bookstore is a valuable asset for the Harlem based African - American community. They carry the classics as well as works by the newest up and coming writers. The sales help are well connected with the local writers scene and can recommend books if you are looing for something with a new fresh voice.
