Browsing at a Local Feminist Bookstore in Tucson, Arizona
Back in the day, you could spend a whole afternoon browsing the shelves of the local women’s bookstore and find more good choices than you can these days at the massive, interchangeable Barnes and Noble and Borders. Independent bookstores are practically an endangered species, but at Antigone Books you'll remember why you always loved them. A display of staff picks greets you when you walk in, complete with short, smart, hand-written reviews. Browse the feminist-themed cards, t-shirts ("I'll Be Post-Feminist in the Post-Patriarchy") and other gift items. Scan the used books shelf for good deals, and check out their calendar for scheduled readings by local authors.
