About This Book Drive
Bookshop.org and Word Up Community Bookshop/Librería Comunitaria are proud to partner with The 1619 Project’s publisher, One World, an imprint of Random House, a division of Penguin Random House LLC, on an initiative to get copies of this groundbreaking historical work into schools, libraries, and other educational and community organizations nationwide.
When you purchase a copy of The 1619 Project through this page, you will be supporting our chosen donation partner The People's Fridge at Word Up - The Peoples Peoples Fridge - Sugar Hill Fridge - La Morada with the donated books, as well as supporting our Bookshop.org storefront with your purchase! FAMALAM (Food, Agriculture, Mutual Aid, And Literature At La Morada) is an ongoing project that aims to nourish both body and mind by addressing the ever-present need for fresh food and accessible literature. The initiative is led by La Morada, an undocumented-family-owned and operated Oaxacan Restaurant in the South Bronx, Word Up Community Bookshop, Sugar Hill Community Fridge, The Peoples Peoples Fridge, and The People's Fridge at Word Up, all located in Uptown Manhattan. Books will be distributed directly to community members during fridge regular distribution events at The People's Fridge (165th St. & Amsterdam Ave.), The Peoples Peoples Fridge (158th St. & St. Nicholas Ave.), and Sugar Hill Fridge (Broadway & 152nd St.).
