Welcome to My Bookshop Storefront
Hi! My name is Nancy B. Kennedy. I'm an author and an affiliate of Bookshop.org, an organization that partners with independent bookstores and book-loving individuals to offer an alternative to mammoth online booksellers. Your purchases through Bookshop.org help support indie bookstores, authors and individuals passionate about creating a vibrant community of readers. Bookshop strives to ensure that local bookstores can remain a vital part of our communities, especially during this time of unprecedented challenges.
Votes for Women! It's Why I'm Here
In 2020, we've been celebrating the 100th anniversary of American women winning the right to vote. In my storefront, I have curated for you a list of books that I've found to be interesting, entertaining and informative about this 72-year fight for the vote. In researching my book, "Women Win the Vote! 19 for the 19th Amendment" (Norton Young Readers, February 2020), I read about 75 books. In addition to bringing you this list of books, I've been sharing what I learned at my author page on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/nancybkennedyauthor/
How Your Purchases Help
When you buy a book through Bookshop.org, the transaction is fulfilled through Bookshop's distributor. A percentage of the sale goes either to the local bookstore of your choosing, or it goes into a pot of money that is distributed evenly among all bookstores participating in Bookshop. As a Bookshop.org affiliate, I receive 10% of the sale price when a book is purchased through my storefront.
In addition to supporting local bookstores, your Bookshop purchase can often be processed more quickly than purchases from booksellers like Amazon, whose fulfillment time has been stretched due to the pressing needs that have arisen due to the coronavirus crisis. Your book will arrive at your doorstep in no time at all!
