What's Our Story?

 Welcome to Sscarlet’s Web Bookstore! We are a black woman-owned online indie bookstore based in Brooklyn, NY and founded in 2020.

Our owner has always loved reading and obtaining knowledge of all kinds, but struggled to find books written by authors of color front and center in one central location. She wanted to create a space that celebrated beauty, creativity, and greatness in written form, thus Sscarlet’s Web Bookstore was born.

Our mission is to offer books from well known and unknown authors alike that will allow you to learn, love, laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.

This bookstore is a place that creates a space to honor authors, specifically authors of color and put them front and center in the hearts and minds of readers.

At Sscarlet's Web Bookstore we have books from all genres, and hope you find your favorite authors and discover new ones.

Like the Ethiopian Proverb states, “When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion.” Let us unite and celebrate the beauty of the written word!
