As a bookstore, we have always striven to present a range of viewpoints, perspectives, opinions, and experiences on our shelves. But as our country grows ever more polarized, we've had to draw a line. Some things aren't up for debate. For example, Black lives matter, vaccines are an important element of community healthcare, and everyone, regardless of age, race, gender identity, sexuality, disability, socioeconomic status or any other element, deserves to see themselves reflected in the books we carry on our shelves.
These are just a few of the apparently "radical" stances we've taken in recent years, and while we believe that we are doing our best to do right by our staff and our community, our actions have consequences.
