Dear Friends!
The bookstore is a-buzz with that busy 'back to school' energy! We're excited about so many books publishing this fall and so many events. While we'd hoped to return to traditional in-person events fall, that no longer seems like a good idea, beyond a few amazing in-person book-signings (Ana Castillo! Samira Ahmed!).

Our virtual events schedule continues with star-studded line-up with Sonora Jha (How to Raise a Feminist Son) and Anita Hill (Believe).

August saw us celebrate our favorite romances on Bookstore Romance Day (check out THIS LIST for more recs!) as well as so many excellent events. A special shout-out to Megan Stielstra for visiting the store and talking about her love of Women & Children First and the books that have been instrumental to her writing and life. Check out Megan's Recommendations!

Happy reading!

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!
