TKE's coronavirus (COVID -19) update

Due to the increasingly frightening news concerning the rapid spread of COVID-19, we have decided that in the interest of your safety and ours we are closing The King’s English for in-store shopping—although not for virtual orders. You can shop with us 24/7 on this very website!

We’ll miss your presence in the store but we’re as close as your fingertips. So please do order online and follow us on InstagramFacebook, and Twitter for fun at a social distance every day! There’s virtual storytime at 11 a.m., chapter book reading at 2 p.m., guest author appearances, and virtual book recommendations from our booksellers for whatever you're craving. Watch your incoming email box for weekly lists of books that will satisfy your every whim and soothe your troubled souls and, during the last week in April, for the spring Inkslinger, which will provide a host of ideas from us and from our favorite authors.

We’re all in this together and together we’ll make the best of it—at least as long as there are books to read and people to talk to about them—even if, for now, via social media. 

Our very best to you and yours!
