July 2021
Dear Friends!
We hope you're taking our bookseller Ida's lead and drowning in Summer Reads!

July is often our sleepiest month when it comes to events, but that's not the case this year! We have a PHENOMENAL line-up, including events with feminist icon Judy Chicago, disability rights pioneer Judith Heumann, and our first in-person event since March 2020: an outdoor book-signing with Eve L. Ewing!

Big new! Beginning July 6, we'll be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. We're still requiring masks in-store and although our capacity is increasing, we're continuing to limit the number of people we allow in the store at a time. We're thrilled that things are getting safer by the day here in Chicago, but like many of you, we need a little time to adjust to being around lots of humans at once. We're also still adapting to how best to manage our expanded online orders while offering the best in-person customer service we can!

Thank YOU for supporting us through all the changes and adaptations!

With love & gratitude,

P.S. We have a TON of amazing events coming up this month! We've heard that some email providers "clip" our newsletter. Be sure to click "view entire message" at the bottom of your screen so you don't miss anything!
