#MarginsBookstores is a celebration of bookstores owned and managed by and for BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, Disabled, and Neurodiverse communities during the month of October. In case you weren’t aware, Tubby & Coo’s is queer, neurodiverse, and disabled owned!
This is a community collaboration coordinated by The Word | A Storytelling Sanctuary, a nonprofit organization fighting for cultural equity through the literary arts. Authentic cultural representation leads us in understanding what the world is and can be; stories lead us in imaging the tomorrow we need. To learn about the current lack of equitable representation in literature and how you can help uplift expression from marginalized communities visit www.thewordfordiversity.org.
