Independent Bookstore Day!

Join us as we celebrate what make us unique in the book business.  Independent Bookstore Day is a nationwide party promoting the importance of small, locally-minded, and independently owned bookstores around the country.  To highlight our care for the community, Highland Books will be donating 10% of todays profits to a local non-profit of our customers choosing.  We will also have a host of freebies and raffles throughout the day.  Our celebration will culminate in an evening reception with a 70's theme for our 43 years in business!

About Us

Highland Books has been providing a homegrown bookstore experience in Transylvania County and surrounding areas since 1976 from the same location, right across from Brevard College. In the store, you will find new books, classic books, big books, small books, and books we all know and love. Along with the books we carry magazines, Fair Trade gift items, and have the best selection of cards in town.  Chris and Amanda Mosser bought the store in 2015 and have certainly found their calling in bookstore ownership. Highland Books is a member of the American Booksellers Association, Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance, and the Chamber of Commerce.
