Susan Post and her bevy of erudite feminists have made Book Woman the bedrock of Austin's progressive community for 25 years. The children's book section alone – stocked with colorful ways to teach little ones about the Earth, gay families, racial equality, and self-love, is worth some long hours of browsing. If corporate book-marts get you down, come to Book Woman to discover the wonderful realm of a local reader's community – all genders welcome. A visit to Book Woman has the marvelous effect of making you feel right at home, and rousing your will to change the world – or maybe just your world.
