Hidden Gems Literary Emporium is the only family-owned, non-profit, community bookstore in New Brunswick, NJ. HGLE was founded by former Rutgers' students, Kaila and Raymond Sykes, and their 1 year old son, Truth Imanu'el.
As Rutgers scholars, community builders, & literary advocates, we are dedicated to making literature accessible, and affordable, with the motivation to cultivate knowledge, wisdom and truth in New Jersey and beyond.
Hidden Gems Literary Emporium is a donation-based bookstore that gives our thousands of free books every month, culminating with an annual #1000FreeBookTour across the country.
Please connect with Hidden Gems Literary Emporium on Facebook and Instagram to see more of the literary advocacy work we do!
We love you for reading!
