El Taller is Lawrence’s Independent Book Store and Café! Born in 2012, El Taller is home to exciting new releases, books by talented local authors and beloved classics. Inside, there’s a long counter where patrons can watch cooks in the open kitchen. There is gallery space where local art hangs on the walls, a stage for monthly open mic nights, and second floor event space to host your next gathering. El Taller works on educational and community programming with partners like the Lawrence Public Library, the Addison Gallery of American Art, and Andover Bread Loaf.
