About the Argo Bookshop
Argo Bookshop has been selling books in Montreal since 1966, and is the oldest anglophone retail bookstore in the city. We’re proud to bring new choice books to the city of Montreal, from Jeanette Winterson and Fernando Pessoa to James Joyce and Thomas Bernhard. Citizens tend to agree when they take the time to browse our shelves, noting that despite the store’s size, it is well-packed with quality. We specialize in literature, literary theory and criticism, philosophy, religion, environmentalism and a broad selection of historical topics. See our history section for more regarding the story of the shop.
Currently, the store is owned by Meaghan Acosta & J.P. Karwacki, who took over on November 1, 2011. They bought the store for its quality and a love of books. The store now acts as a means to the end of continuing support and promotion of literary culture through bookselling and literary events.
