Support National Coalition Against Domestic Violence

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.

"Ever since the beginning of the pandemic, I've been thinking about the people who have been quarantined with their abusers. Please consider supporting the NCADV and their essential work."—Carmen Maria Machado
