Book of the Month:

A Year with
George Orwell,

Black Lives Matter. 

In the summer of 2020, after the murder of George Floyd, Unabridged Bookstore made a year-long commitment to each month support and contribute to organizations that work towards achieving racial justice in America, as well as promoting social, environmental and economic justice. From June 2020 thru May 2021, Unabridged Bookstore has contributed over $22,000 to 21 different organizations, and we are now re-dedicating our yearlong commitment to support these kinds of organizations each month. Thank you for joining us in this commitment.

To honor the Black Lives Matter movement, and as part of our commitment to promoting the work of activists and organizations engaged in the fight for environmental justice and against systemic racism, social injustice, hunger, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia, we choose to support these two organizations this month:

We invite you to join us to support Young, Black & Lit and Rainbow Railroad as they work to achieve meaningful and lasting change in our community. For more information about each organization, or to make your own contribution, click above. We ask that you continue to support LGBTQ+ authors, to read books by BIPOC writers, and to read and resist!

Thank you,
Unabridged Bookstore
