New bookshop opens cover on Short North store

Columbus’ newest bookshop has written its first chapter.

Prologue Bookshop is an independent bookstore located in the Short North Arts District at 841 N High St.

Owner and manager Dan Brewser hails from northeast Ohio where he worked in book-adjacent jobs.


After graduating with degrees in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis, he moved to San Francisco for work where he discovered independent bookstores.

“I [was] amazed at the variety of the interest and the characters of the stores,” he told “Libraries tend to have a different appeal; I hadn’t really realized the appeal of bookstores before in the same way. I was talking to a friend not long after I moved there like, ‘when we retire we should totally open a bookstore,’ at the time thinking that was 40 years away.”

But, that time came quicker than he thought. Brewser opened Prologue Bookshop the week of Thanksgiving.

Prologue is open Mon-Thurs from 11am-8pm, Friday from 11am-9pm, Saturday from 9am-10pm, and Sunday from 9am-8pm.
