It’s June and you know what that means–the LGBTQ+ Book Crawl is returning to the Lower East Side!
The second annual Lower East Side Pride Book Crawl will return on Saturday, June 17, filled with incredible discounts, free drinks, and awesome giveaways.
This year’s book crawl will feature many of the same bookstores as last year alongside new additions that may have yet to be explored.
Once again this year’s crawl will be launched by Bluestockings Cooperative, a queer, trans, and women-owned feminist bookstore that boasts over 23 years on the Lower East Side and is one of the oldest feminist bookstores in the country.
Shops participating in the crawl will partake in the city’s Pride Month celebration and will highlight books by and about the LBGTQ+ community to be enjoyed by queer New Yorkers and book lovers alike.
Participating bookstores include:
- Bluestockings Cooperative Bookstore – 116 Suffolk Street
- Book Club Bar – 197 E 3rd Street
- Sweet Pickle Books – 47 Orchard Street
- Yu & Me Books – 44 Mulberry Street
- Printed Matter/St. Marks – 38 Saint Marks Place
- P&T Knitwear – 180 Orchard Street
The LGBTQ+ book crawl officially starts at 12p.m. and ends at 7p.m. on Saturday, June 17th.
