Books are Awesome Gifts - Non-Fiction Fixes!

We could recommend books for hours, but we've narrowed down our list of favorites to help you find the perfect book for someone you love (including yourself) this season. These are some of our most loved non-fiction resources and books!

Just to remind you- we've got FREE shipping if you pick up in store or order more than $25.  (And if you need to rush as holiday deadlines loom, let us know - we'll find you the best deal). This season celebrate and support the indie bookstores and indie book-lovers in your life.

If you're not in need of books but love what feminist space creates - think about making a donation to Wild Iris Books.  You'll know you're part of the foundation and with your support, spaces like Free Store and Trans Affairs can thrive and grow.  We're also starting new groups like the Wild Iris Project, a social community with resources and education surrounding domestic violence and sexual assault.  

Donate today to support us year round with a monthly contribution to help ensure feminist bookselling stays strong here at home.

There is no one way to be transgender. Transgender and gender non-conforming people have many different ways of understanding their gender identities.
