Event Details

Charis Circle is bringing these incredible feminist voices to you to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Charis Books & More. This event will benefit Charis Circle, the nonprofit sister organization of Charis Books, which brings all of Charis’ feminist programming to our community. Charis Circle became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 1996 to take over all Charis programming, community education and outreach.

 

You may not know that only 14, yes 14, feminist bookstores remain in the United States – down from over 120 feminist bookstores in 1994.  In the current economy, Charis Circle needs your support more than ever. This celebration is an opportunity to build sustainability for this critical community resource that we all love. You are Charis and your participation in these Charis Circle fundraising events is a statement of feminist activism. Join Alice Walker, Pearl Cleage, and the Indigo Girls to continue building sustainable feminist community in Atlanta for another 35 years. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Pearl Cleage
Pearl Cleage is the author of seven novels, fifteen plays, lots of poetry, many essays and a fair number of indignant letters to the editor. She lives in Atlanta with her husband and frequent collaborator, Zaron W. Burnett, Jr. More info available on www.pearlcleage.net or on her Face Book fan page.


Indigo Girls

Since their formation over two decades ago, ground-breaking folk duo Indigo Girls have become one of America's most beloved musical acts. Along with the release of 10 albums, six Grammy nominations, and inspiring live performances, they have passionately acted on behalf of numerous social causes. Indigo Girls have supported a wide range of grassroots organizations across the United States and at home in Georgia including the environmental justice foundation, Honor the Earth, and the pro-peace, anti-nuclear woman-led organization, Georgia WAND.


Alice Walker

Alice Walker is an American novelist, short-story writer, poet, essayist, and activist. Her most famous novel, The Color Purple, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1983. Alice Walker's creative vision is rooted in the economic hardship, racial terrorism, and folk wisdom of African American life and culture, particularly in the rural South. Her writing explores multidimensional kinships among women, among men and women, among humans and animals, and embraces the redemptive power of social, spiritual and political revolution.

About Charis Circle and Charis Books & More:

For 35 years Charis Books & More, the oldest and largest feminist bookstore in the South, has played host to legendary programs and events.   In 1996, we created a separate non-profit, Charis Circle, to continue and expand our program offerings. Together, Charis Books and Charis Circle create a forum for free thought, independent voices, and unique expression. As a non-profit, Charis Circle is funded mainly through individual giving efforts and foundation gifts. Charis Circle rents space from Charis Books and More to house our office, as well as to hold our programs and provide the only community feminist space in Atlanta that is open to the public 7 days a week. Charis Books & More is a for-profit, independent business that is funded through book sales.
