Support Our Beloved Book Passage!

This is Anne Lamott, and odds are I have met you at Book Passage—maybe at one of the tens of thousands of author events they’ve done, both with the legendary and the up-and-coming? Maybe at one of the writing workshops I taught for ten years while my son was little? Or at any of several hundred writing and publishing and travel workshops they’ve offered over the decades? Or at the annual Mystery Writer’s Conference? 

Book Passage is, to me, a cross between church, a beehive and gym, where we celebrate in community the deep and profound nourishments we have found in the written word, incredible joy and wisdom, gratitude and laughter. It is like a Nautilus for our minds and spirits. It has been a home for many of us and our children.

Today, without the buzz of customers in their stores or authors on tour, Book Passage is fighting to support its over 50 booksellers and keep the doors open to welcome us back after this crisis. So, can you join me in helping build them up, by coming together as a community during these deeply isolated times? Let’s raise the rent together, the high costs of keeping it alive until it is back of its feet, and the health insurance for the booksellers. I can start with $200–ANY amount you can add would be just wonderful. Thank you!
