About

Boneshaker Books is a volunteer-run, radical bookstore based in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis, MN. We aim to introduce readers to leftist politics, facilitate conversations, support ongoing movements, and collectively create a space that will grow, evolve, and respond to community needs and pressing issues. We strive to exemplify what a collectively run leftist space can be. We are not motivated by profit, and we are committed to financial sustainability through selling books and grassroots support.

We house the Women’s Prison Book Project (WPBP). This great group provides books to female and transgender inmates across the country through mail requests. We also share space with the Twin Cities Democratic Socialists of America (TCDSA), another group doing crucial work to support our communities.

On March 8, 2020, the Boneshaker Collective announced that the store would be closing due to financial difficulties. But this vital literary and organizing space remains essential. A new Boneshaker collective has risen from the ashes, to fight for a different end to this story. We have more work to do, but we can’t do it without your support.
