Because of coronavirus-related concerns, most of the March events at Women & Children First bookstore, 5233 N. Clark St., have been rescheduled for late spring and summer dates.
In addition, events with Eli Clare, Nadina LaSpina, Cathy Park Hong and Megan Fernandes have all been cancelled. The bookstore stated, "We hope to reschedule with these amazing authors soon, so please keep checking WomenAndChildrenFirst.com and following us on social media for updates."
As of March 13, the store's ticketed events with N.K. Jemisin (March 31), Samantha Irby and Megan Stielstra (April 14), and Rebecca Solnit and Eula Biss (April 23) have not been cancelled. However, for everyone's health and safety, book signings and photo lines will likely not be possible in the coming months.
Also, with the loss of most of its March events, the store is asking for contributions to our non-profit arm, the Women's Voices Fund (CrossroadsFund.org/content/womens-voices-fund).
