Not only the sole feminist bookstore in Texas

Austin’s own BookWoman is one of just twelve feminist bookstores surviving in the entire United States, an endangered species. We are fortunate to enjoy the number of independent bookstores that we do. I’ve been buying from BookWoman since it was housed in that wonderful Sixth Street storefront. Upon expiration of the lease for its store at 918 West Twelfth Street, BookWoman must find a new home. BookWoman needs money! Buying books there is one way to help. A cash contribution (not tax deductible, but people are working to change that) is another way to help. BookWoman, along with Terra Toys, has always been an unexpectedly good place to find books for children. The selection of mysteries is an excellent one, also. I’ve bought many fine books at BookWoman that I wasn’t even looking for. The SaveBookWoman site will continue to be updated. Financial goals must be met by mid-December. Tell your book-reading friends. Buy your holiday presents now. BookWoman stocks more than the same old best-sellers. BookWoman is local and supports local publishers. BookWoman helps make Austin the Austin that we know and love. Remember Congress Avenue Books? Garner & Smith? Watson & Co.? We still enjoy the benefits of BookPeople and BookWoman and other, smaller independent booksellers. Let’s keep it that way.
