Minneapolis Poet Publisher and Activist, Chaun Webster, to open Ancestry Books

Ancestry Books Pop-Up Bookstore is an effort to bring literature from under-represented authors to the community of North Minneapolis.

From Chaun: Greetings Friends and Family,

I’ve been in conversation with you all to some level about our bookstore dreams.  As you may or may not know North Minneapolis doesn’t have a single bookstore and the number of spaces doing great cultural work are rare.  We need more spaces to read, to build community, to organize and build power.  We are looking to add to the conversation as we have secured a space for Ancestry Books and are looking to launch in June.  Particularly we will be focusing on work from Indigenous authors and authors of color who are severely underrepresented in most libraries, bookstores and public school curriculum.
