Proudly an independent bookstore since 1989, McIntyre’s Books offers a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction, with an emphasis on cooking, gardening, mystery and local authors.

Since Keebe Fitch opened McIntyre’s, we’ve hosted one of the largest author events programs in the South. Our event program includes weekly author readings and seasonal event series, such as Cooks & Books or Books & Beer.

McIntyre’s is located in Fearrington Village near Chapel Hill, NC. Drop by for a book recommendation from our seasoned staff or just to browse. We hope you’ll stay in touch by signing up for our weekly email updates, “liking” us on Facebook or following us on Twitter.
