NY Bookstore :: Housing Works

Soho’s Best Kept Secret
While you’re in New York for AWP, check out Housing Works Bookstore:

“450,000 new, used, and rare book and records in a classic library setting with twenty-foot ceilings, a mahogany paneled interior, spiral staircases, and a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Our cafe features sandwhiches, wraps, soups, salads, great coffee, tea, beer, wine and desserts. Special event, live music, and readings make the UBC a great place to meet friends, relax and shop the best used book selection in NYC. 100% of the profits go to housing works, a non-profit organization that provides housing, health care, job training, advocacy, and many other services for homeless New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.”

Donate Books
Not only that, but for those of you with exhibit tables who don’t want to haul your books/magazines back across the country, consider donating them to HWB:

“100% of our books, records, and CDs are donated. Publishers and reviewers often donate new books, but we also depend heavily on customer donations. Donations can be brought into the bookstore during regular hours. All donations are tax deductible and we will provide you with the proper tax form. We occasionally schedule pickups for large donations. If you are interested in scheduling a pick-up, please send us an email with the basic information on your books (location, size of donation, type of books) and we’ll get back to you promptly. Please note, we are no longer able to reimburse for taxi receipts.”
