Bans Off Our Books and Our Bodies

What can a bookstore do to help following the U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade (among a whole crop of awful rulings)? One small thing is to promote books on the topic of abortion, birth control, and bodily autonomy. Ten percent of proceeds from the sale of any books on this list will be donated to the National Network of Abortion Funds.

Thanks to The Cut and  Pulp Fiction Culver City for suggestions for our list, and thanks to River Dog Book Co. for spearheading the Bans Off Our Books + Our Bodies campaign.
