Want to have an event at Women & Children First?

Interested in having an event at Women & Children First? Email a proposal to wcfbookevents@gmail.com.  For poetry events, please email H. Melt at wcfhmelt@gmail.com

In your email, be sure to include: 

  • Proposed date.
  • Anticipated attendance, focusing on your Chicago-area network.
  • Feminist relevance.
  • If you are an author, include the name of the publisher and its contact information. Please note that we require a minimum 40% dscount when ordering books for an author event. The publisher also MUST accept returns.

Please note:

  • Due to the large number of proposals we receive each day, we cannot respond to every email.
  • In addition to meeting all our criteria for an event, self-published authors will be charged a $50 booking fee, which will benefit the Women's Voices Fund.
  • Please note, we no longer host events for books that have been self-published through Createspace, Amazon's self-publishing platform.
  • Currently, our event calendar is booked through SEPTEMBER 2018.
