Boneshaker Books is a radical & progressive bookstore located in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis. Boneshaker, staffed solely by volunteers, first opened in January of 2011. We specialize in progressive/radical literature, children's books, and a curated fiction section. Purchase in our store or place a special order online for pickup. If you are local, you can choose to have your purchase delivered to you by bicycle!

Our volunteers staff one 3-4 hour shift a week, and often participate on a committee, like ordering, events or promotion. Interested? Find out how to volunteer.

We also house the Women's Prison Book Project. This great group provides books to female and transgender inmates across the country through mail requests.
