culturally curated, radically influenced, and locally inspired

A new bookstore, justBook-ish, is coming to the Fields Corner neighborhood! It will be located on the ground floor of a new apartment building being developed at 1463 Dorchester Ave called Dot Crossing Apartments. 

According to the Boston Globe, the founders Porsha Olayiwola, poet laureate of Boston, and Bing Broderick envision a shop that is “culturally curated, radically influenced, and locally inspired.”  The 1,300-square-foot space will feature a collection of adult and children’s literature with some selections from local writers, plus a lineup of special programming, including book clubs, teen nights, kids’ story hours, and more!  There are also plans to have a bar selling coffee, beer, wine, and smoothies. You can read more details about this exciting new business here! 

justBook-ish hopes to be open by June – Dorchester Reporter has details about the plan here!
