Elizabeth's Bookshop & Writing Centre is an innovative literacy center designed to amplify and celebrate marginalized voices. Our catalog highlights, promotes, amplifies, celebrates, and honors the work of QTBIPOC writers who are often excluded from traditional cultural, social and academic canons. Through curated collections of own voices' narratives, Elizabeth's seeks to educate and re-shape the lens of readers as they see themselves and how they view the world.
Founded by Akron native, Rachel Elizabeth Cargle, Elizabeth's is a manifestation of her passions as an activist and author. Equal parts bookshop and writing center, Elizabeth's storefront is committed to contributing to Akron's vibrant economic resurgence as a safe gathering space rooted in the values of community, curiosity, justice, and joy.
A percentage of all sales from Elizabeth's will go to The Loveland Foundation, Inc. to support their mission of making mental healthcare accessible for Black women, girls and gender non-conforming individuals.
