Community bookselling is first and foremost about community. Everyone is hurting right now. All of us and our neighbors—the people who have shopped in our stores and attended our reading series, joined WORD’s book groups and brought their children to our storytimes. And it’s the booksellers and the authors, too. And every day, WORD is working with brilliant writers to raise money for worthy causes to help address the issues close to their hearts, strengthen our shared communities, and start taking better care of our friends and families, everywhere.
"The ACLU is not only fighting for protestors right now—challenging facial recognition software and the brutal police violence witnessed at Lafayette Square, calling for the end of curfews and the protection of journalists—they've been fighting the good fight all along. For accountability and fairness and justice and mercy and the equal protection of all."—Benjamin Percy
From June 15 through June 21, 10% of the sales of the books on this page will be donated to support the crucial work of the ACLU.
