Founding the Future: A Conversation with Beverly Guy-Sheftall & Gloria Steinem, Moderated by Alexis Pauline Gumbs
Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 7:30 PM (EST)
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 Gloria Steinem, Beverly Guy-Sheftall, and Alexis Pauline Gumbs to continue building sustainable feminist community in Atlanta for another 35 years (and beyond). Thank you in advance for your generosity.

When & Where
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.
