Founded in NYC, Open Borders Books was born from an expansive idea of the reading community and the imperative to bring vital and challenging voices to diverse audiences in stimulating ways. Acknowledging that this is a city of immigrants founded by colonialists and enslaved people on unceded Lenape land, Open Borders has an obligation to represent the stories and histories of this land and the people and animals who have called it home as completely as we're able.
And while we're working around the clock to create interesting lists for you, you can purchase darn near anything through our storefront and support our mission.
Half of all online proceeds will go to Make the Road NY and half toward establishing a new radical bookshop in the wildly multiethnic and queer neighborhood of Jackson Heights, Queens. As with all bookshop.org purchases, 10% of the purchase price will support existing independent bookstores.
