Downtown Boise’s Rediscovered Books expands

Celebrate the grand re-opening of Downtown Boise’s independent bookstore, Rediscovered Books, 180 N. 8th St., on Saturday, Sept. 5. The shop is expanding into the space to its north that formerly was filled by Lux Fashion Lounge.

Lux moved down the street to 785 W. Idaho St. earlier this summer. Rediscovered will use its space to expand all of the bookstore’s offerings and expand space for events.

Laura and Bruce Delaney opened the store nine years ago on the Boise Bench. They moved it Downtown in 2010. Since then, it has become a fixture in the cultural scene by hosting literary events and presenting name authors in partnership with area libraries.

The Re-opening Party will go from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. with local author readings, live music and in store-discounts. Beer tasting from Post Modern Brewers starts at 5 p.m. Find more information at
