What the community has to say about Sam Weller's Books

Information about this business (4)

This is the most famous bookstore in Utah and offers much more than books. Upstairs you will find a section dedicated to LDS books, rare reads and more delicate papers. Downstairs resembles a regular bookstore, but the selection is much more diverse. Visiting authors come here to read from their newest manuscripts and are available for a question and answer time afterward, as well as...

In 1925, my grandparents, Gustav and Margaret Weller with five of their eventual 12 children, emigrated from eastern Germany to Salt Lake City, the home of the Mormon Church, the religion to which they had recently converted. Like many immigrants, they struggled with poverty, language barriers and bigotry born of the recent war against Germany. Gustav, who came to be known as Gus, worked in a...

Sadly, there was a period when fiction was split. We were moving the fiction section from the basement to the balcony, and, because our fiction section is so large, it took a very long time to get it all in one place again. Happily, that section move is finished! Fiction is reunited on the balcony!

Head over to the Coffee Garden Coffee Shop inside of of this bookstore. There you will find free wifi and window seating. There's always a great mixture of people coming and going throughout the day.
