Healing Trauma Across Communities

One of the devastating tools within the colonizers’ toolbox has been the practice of Divide and Conquer, creating fear and distrust among and between Indigenous and communities of color.

A Winter Haunting: Ghost Stories at The Bookstore!

before there were jingle bells, before frosty, before rudolph, there were terrifying christmas specters that haunted in the dead of winter. it's a tradition dating back hundreds of years to tell their stories around the solstice, the longest night of the year, to honor that time when the living and the dead sit close together in the darkness. 

bring food or drink to share, a pillow or blanket to sit on*, a flashlight, and bring a story! a good ghostly story to tell around a darkened circle of boneshakers. or bring yourself and that will be plenty!

*there will be chairs for accessibility and comfort
