Local Business Spotlight - Lantern Tree Books

Devin with Louis Force Torres, owner and founder of Lantern Tree Books

Seeking to create a community center and hub for his business, Louis Force Torres founded Lantern Tree Books in Downtown Carpinteria. The store began as an old restaurant and was transformed into a charming indie bookstore, offering a wide selection of books (new, old, and rare) that reflect the interests and perspectives of the Carpinteria community. Lantern Tree Books aims to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for book lovers, offering a space for readers to shop, browse, read, and partake in community events.

Devin recently sat down with his good friend Louis to talk about the importance of having a local, brick-and-mortar bookstore, the renaissance of Carpinteria, and more! Watch the full interview Here and the reel interview Here.

We’re also excited to share our Lantern Tree Books Giveaway! For a chance to win a $50 gift card to Lantern Tree Books, follow the instructions on our Instagram post HERE!

Lantern Tree Books is open every day from 11:00 AM - 7:00  PM.
