Two Owls Independent Bookshop went into business on the 2 December 2016 when two childhood friends, Oana Doboşi and Raluca Selejan, decided to make a business out of their lifelong passion – books. The bookshop became a place where culture can be more conspicuous for both, Timişoara’s population and local art scene, and for the tourists.
Through the books, they decide to bring in the shop and the great number of events they organize with writers also from Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Serbia, USA or Island, they’ve managed to generate a warm and friendly environment in which they intend to promote Romanian and world literature, human sciences and art.
Another aim is to bring the books closer to children, therefore a reading area just for them can be found inside the bookshop. They’ve managed to give Timişoara a touch of daintiness through the books they promote and the events they organize, daintiness that spread among the whole city.
