The Campfire Sale
for many great organizations.
Thank you so much for buying books. We are thrilled for you to read these books, and we are excited to donate your money to good places.
In November 2016, we had a sale:
• Most of our books were 20% off.
• Proceeds went to great organizations.
Read more below.
We believe in pockets of fluid community that are not a given. They need to be constantly reinforced and strained with and weathered over and cultivated with listening and art and sweat.
To do our part, we reached out to all our authors and asked if we could put their books on sale for 20% off and donate all the proceeds after royalties to organizations of their choice.
We were heartened by the organizations our authors chose, and we invited you to check out the back catalog and buy a book.
Like our friends at Black Lawrence Press, whose roll call is BOOKS NOT BIGOTRY, we pledged to "post regular updates detailing the number of books sold and the amount of our donations."
We called this
the Campfire Sale.
There is a lot of work going forward, and a lot of fear and mourning going deep, but one of the things it feels like we have to do is keep making campfires with people we love.
Be radically present for everyone suppressed, intimidated, violenced, fucked over. Be sneaky as shit. Be surprising with love. Be boring as logs until the light. Be funny with kindness. Be here for the with.
(Thank you to Entropy Magazine for this living document of resources.)
