A few words about Gallimard de Montréal

  • La libraire Gallimard de Montréal is North America’s premier French language bookseller when it comes to literature and ideas.

    The bookstore opened on November 9th, 1989 on the west side of Boulevard Saint-Laurent, or the Main as Montrealers call it, between Pine Avenue and Prince Arthur streets. Since its very inception, it has been a repository for literature from around the world. Alongside the great authors of France and Quebec are the works from across the globe in French translation. We’re more than a bookstore. We foster foster debate and dialogue around our collection, ensuring that our space is a lively venue where literature and ideas come alive. Whether in poetry, theatre, philosophy, literature, the humanities, every corner of our bookstore offers a rich font of knowledge and enjoyment based on a wealth of experience.

  • We’re more than just Gallimard

    Before Gallimard came to be known as a publishing house – Éditions Gallimard - our name spoke to our first mission, bookselling – Librairie Gallimard. But publishing has always been part of who we are. Over the years we have built an impressive catalogue of 40,000 titles. Yet our passion for the written word means that you will find far more than our titles in our store and our online catalogue. That’s how we have become one of North America’s most important booksellers, sustaining a vibrant literary and intellectual vocation.
