Changing Hands Bookstore

Changing Hands is Arizona’s leading independent bookstore, offering new and used books, unique gifts, toys, and more than 300 author events every year. In Tempe since 1974 (currently at 6428 South McClintock Drive),Changing Hands opened a second location in 2014 at The Newton, an innovative adaptive reuse project that re-purposed the iconic Beef Eaters restaurant in central Phoenix. This second location (at 300 West Camelback Road) is home to Changing Hands’ own First Draft Book Bar, one of a small handful “book bars” in the U.S. that serve wine, beer, and coffee drinks in addition to book and event offerings.
