We’re glad you’re here!
Wild Geese Bookshop is an independent bookstore just 18 miles south of Indianapolis in Franklin, Indiana. We ship throughout the US. Pre-order books or shop via our website if you can’t make it in.
We hand-pick our books and gifts to find beautiful, thoughtful treasures for your celebrations or to choose for a friend on not-so-great days.
Since opening in November of 2016, we’ve hosted approximately 30 special events and 24 authors. We’re learning more and more about how to meaningfully respond to the stories and voices of our community with used sales to benefit local literacy organizations. We’ve just returned from Book Expo in New York and are excited to try some new things in the coming year. We love partnering with other businesses in Franklin to create unique experiences for our customers. Here’s a brief overview of some things we have planned, but check in for updates.
The bookshop hosts a monthly book club on the third Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm.
