The bookstore at 5233 N. Clark St. is a staple of the indie-loving Andersonville community, and according to a Wednesday article on wheretraveler.com, "one of less than 10 independently owned feminist bookstores in the country."
Women & Children First "thrives on the idea that costumers of every race, sex and religion should 'shop as independently as they think'" — and the shop "works hard to bring customers not only the best new titles in the literary scene, but smaller books that deserve greater attention as well, especially those created by women writers," said the article.
Where, which publishes magazines, travel guides, websites and more, also noted the Andersonville store hosts book clubs, author readings and writing workshops to help its customers "become contributors in their own right."
The owners of the bookstore said last year they were ready to retire and were shopping around for a new buyer — under the condition that whoever buys their business maintains its feminist focus and keeps it indie.
Strand Bookstore in New York City, Skylight Books in L.A., the Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Mass., and Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe & Grill in D.C. also made Where's list, among other bookstores.
