Support Hour Children

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.

"Children going hungry in our very wealthy country should be a crime, illegal.  My outrage does nothing, I know, it doesn't change the reality of children's lives being looted by an indifferent government. I support Hour Children and other food banks that work to keep people alive."—Lynne Tillman

From June 15th through June 21st, 10% of the sales of the books on this page will be donated to support the crucial work of Hour Children.
