A hybrid coffee shop and intersectional Feminist bookstore in Prospect Heights that opened in 2017, this welcoming neighborhood spot hosts monthly book club meet-ups for women of color. (The meet-ups currently happening over Zoom.) Come for the coffee and explore their excellent collection of Black books to educate yourself on stories on people of color. The shop is intimate so it’s a great place to meet a friend or nestle up to a book.
