*** If you're ordering a book that has not yet released, please create a separate order for just that preorder. If we receive orders that contain both not-yet-published books and currently available books, your order will be delayed and $4 shipping will be automatically added.
We are currently about 24 hours behind processing online orders.
When placing an order, please note that USPS is experiencing significant delays due to the global pandemic. If you need your books promptly, we strongly recommend that you select priority mail as your shipping method. Women & Children First is not responsible for lost or stolen packages!
When placing an order for curbside pickup, please type “curbside pickup” in the comments box at checkout. We will try to accommodate all requests for curbside pickup, but depending on a book's availability, some orders must ship directly from our warehouse. If your order is one of them, we will let you know!
We so appreciate your overwhelming support! Please be kind and patient with our small staff during this challenging time. ***
