what’s a bookpub?

Storyhouse Bookpub is a new kind of community bookstore. We love selling books, but for us, it’s more than that. We seek to reflect the people and passion in our community by partnering with other local businesses in Des Moines, Iowa to create events and experiences around a diverse collection of books.

welcome to Storyhouse

hi, I’m Abbey! what are you reading?

I’ve always been a reader, but my very favorite thing is having good talks with great friends in beautiful places. I love how books can do that, which is why I spend most of my time working to bring books and people together. I started out as a high school English teacher before stumbling into the book industry where I learned the bookselling ropes at an indie bookstore in Denver, Colorado. For me, there are few things better than nerding out over reading and bringing bookworms together over food, drinks and quirky events. Originally an Iowa girl, I’m happy to be home and working to build Storyhouse into an open-hearted Des Moines destination.
