Cheers for Give OUT Day!
Aunt Lute Books would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of our supporters who were able to make donations on Give OUT Day, the national day of giving for the LGBT community. Your generous support helps make it possible for us to sustain our operations and continue our mission of publishing the voices of women of color, queer women, and others whose stories have been traditionally underrepresented in publishing. We're so grateful to be part of a vibrant community that sees the value of our work and continues to support us.
Winners of our Give OUT Day raffle will be notified this week!
Get excited for the Bay Area Book Festival
National Poetry Month is wrapping up, Indie Bookstore Day is Saturday, and the Bay Area Book Festival is this weekend! So many reasons to come out and join Aunt Lute Books in Berkeley.
The Bay Area Book Festival is going down this weekend! "The Festival is a two-day event complete with literary sessions presenting top authors from this region, the nation, and the world, along with an outdoor fair with hundreds of literary exhibitors. We also offer events for kids and writing contests. We even have a mini film festival — a series of ten films on literature — with BAMPFA. We transform vibrant Downtown Berkeley into a literary utopia where readers of all ages and interests can find kindred spirits." BABF takes place in Berkeley, 4/28-4/29, and Aunt Lute Books will be selling our titles for up to 50% off. Come through, say hi to our staff, and buy some books! Find us on Radical Row: MLK between Allston and Center.
