Description: Welcome to R.J. Julia Booksellers
Located in the shoreline town of Madison, Connecticut, RJ Julia Booksellers has always been a place of inspiration, information, and excitement.

RJ Julia opened 21 years ago as an independent bookstore whose mission was, and is, to be a place where words matter, where writer meets reader, where the ambiance and selection and merchandising of books creates an atmosphere that is welcoming and presents the opportunity for discovery. Ultimately we are fiercely committed to putting the right book in the right hand.

We are extremely proud of having won major awards nationally, statewide and locally, including in part: Publishers Weekly Bookseller of the Year, Lucille Pannell award for bookselling excellence, Connecticut Magazine Best Bookstore, Connecticut Retailers Award for Community commitment, Advocate's Best Bookstore and the New Haven Business Small Business Award.

We host over 300 events a year. Authors from all over the country—some even from overseas—visit the store to inspire, educate, and entertain us.

In addition to a busy events schedule, we pride ourselves on having a knowledgeable staff, opinionated book selections (look for those little white "shelf-talker" tags), and a passion for reading. You can be sure that when you pick up any book at our store, it is one that we have hand-selected with specific reading audiences in mind.

RJ Julia continues to evolve with our customers and technology. Here on our Web site you can browse our hand-picked recommendations, learn about our upcoming events, purchase our favorite picks and ask questions or make suggestions--anytime, anywhere.
