Support this radical feminist press🎉

For 40 years, Aunt Lute Books has worked to publish and support authors often overlooked and actively excluded by the literary canon and the publishing industry. And our work is far from over.

Help us keep going. Help us keep publishing.

For the next 40 days, we are asking our community to support our work. As a nonprofit, we've been hit hard over the last few years. The cost of doing our work keeps going up, and funding avenues we've used in the past are dwindling.

We are aiming high and trying to raise $40,000 by Giving Tuesday on November 29, 2022 to support our work.

If you can't support us financially right now, we ask that you consider sharing our fundraiser on social media, forward this email to friends, continue sharing our books and the stunning work of our authors with others, and continue to read radical works.

Aunt Lute's Legacy

Aunt Lute Books is a nonprofit intersectional feminist publisher that has published Gloria Anzaldùa, Audre Lourde, Alice Walker, Judy Grahn, Leanne Howe, Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz, Paula Gunn Allen, and so many more, Aunt Lute has been a pioneer in the small press world. And our staying power over the course of 40 years is a testament to the need for the work we do, if not to the ingenuity of literary activists.

Aunt Lute titles include the first U.S. collection of Filipina/Filipina American women writers (Babaylan), the first collection of Southeast Asian women writers (Our Feet Walk the Sky), as well as a number of translated texts (most recently Rosa Montero’s Beautiful and Dark). Our bestsellers include Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza and The Cancer Journals: Special Edition, titles used in classrooms throughout the U.S. and around the world.
