Women & Children First Book Swap during Andersonville Sidewalk Sale

As part of Andersonville Sidewalk Sale, we'll be hosting our second annual Book Swap! Community members are encouraged to meet up outside the bookstore anytime between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. to bring ONE book and take ONE book.

We know many of you were disappointed to hear that we are discontinuing our annual used book sale. We also miss this beloved tradition, but unfortunately this fundraiser demanded an exhausting amount of behind-the-scenes labor that was physically and financially unsustainable. If you're looking to donate used books, we recommend Open Books Chicago or our neighbor, Uncharted Books.

Of course, this difficult decision also means the loss of our biggest fundraiser of the year for The Women's Voices Fund, our non-profit arm that makes all of our events and programming possible. Until we generate ideas for a new fundraising event, direct donations are encouraged. 

Thank you for your understanding! We hope you enjoy this year's Book Swap and that it grows into an equally beloved annual tradition.
