Books We're Proud Of

Happy Pride Month!! We have a selection of LGBTQ+ books on the column by the entrance. It's currently stocked with graphic novels and manga, queer comics being something of a specialty for us. But we'll rotate through different books as the month goes on. Hope to see some celebrants in the store!
