so in amherst, ma there’s a book store called food for thought books. it’s a great store - it sells mostly social justice, feminism, queer theory, and related progressive/radical books of every stripe. it’s a really great place with a good atmosphere and they host a lot of social justice-related events in the area. i’ve been there several times and it’s a really great place for progressive/sj-y types. it’s run for 37 years in the area and is a non-profit workers’ collective. here is their website if you want to learn more.
HOWEVER, if they don’t raise enough money, they’re closing this year. so please check out their indiegogo and if you have money to spare, donate! i really want food for thought to stay alive because it’s a unique book store unlike others in the area. if you can’t donate, it helps to reblog and signal boost!
