Charis Books and More/Charis Circle says
Charis is so excited to welcome Kristen Hogan with her new book, The Feminist Bookstore Movement: Lesbian Antiracism and Feminist Accountability. If you are curious about how Charis fits into a larger feminist bookstore movement history, have always wondered what we mean when we call ourselves a feminist bookstore, or if you would like to know more about the history of intersectional feminist action, join us to celebrate this important book!

About the book: from the 1970s through the 1990s more than one hundred feminist bookstores built a transnational network that helped shape some of feminism's most complex conversations. Kristen Hogan traces the feminist bookstore movement's rise and eventual fall, restoring its radical work to public feminist memory. The bookwomen at the heart of this story--mostly lesbians and including women of color--measured their success not by profit, but by developing theories and practices of lesbian antiracism and feminist accountability. At bookstores like BookWoman in Austin, the Toronto Women's Bookstore, and Old Wives Tales in San Francisco, and in the essential Feminist Bookstore News, bookwomen changed people's lives and the world. In retelling their stories, Hogan not only shares the movement's tools with contemporary queer antiracist feminist activists and theorists, she gives us a vocabulary, strategy, and legacy for thinking through today's feminisms.
