queerbook is out now!

We are so excited to announce our debut anthology! queerbook is the culmination of Philly AIDS Thrift @ Giovanni’s Room’s first-ever writing contest. We are proud to present queerbook as a collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from members of our store’s community from all over the world.

Featuring over 30 writers, as well as an introduction from one of the founders of Giovanni’s Room, this book reflects our pasts, presents, and futures. It is a snapshot of our current moment — our hopes, dreams and fears in a quickly changing world. Copies are available in store and online at https://www.queerbooks.com/product/queerbook. $14.99 + tax

And we’re BACK!

THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 19th, we will be reopening to the public. We have spent a week cleaning, re-organizing and re-stocking so we can open FRESH and FULL. We want to keep our community as safe a possible and that is why customers must be wearing a mask to enter the store. If you don’t have one, we can give you one. Also, THANK YOU for maintaining that good ol’ social distance, especially since we are only letting 10 people in at a time.

For the time being our store hours will be a little different. Monday through Saturday we will be open from 11am until 6pm, and on Sundays we will be closing at 5pm. At this time we are unable to accept donations, so please keep an eye on our sister store (Philly AIDS Thrift) for when they are accepting donations.

We are still shipping books directly to customers if you place an order via queerbooks.com — also feel free to place curbside pick up orders through the website if you’d like. Every bit of support helps, especially right now.

We miss and love you, can’t wait to see you soon!
