Lesbian-owned bookstore Charis to open new feminist center

The oldest and largest feminist bookstore in the Southeast is looking for a new and bigger  home.

Charis Books & More and Charis Circle, the nonprofit arm of the independent feminist bookstore, are seeking a new space to open a feminist center and asking the community to become involved in making it happen.

At an informal event at the bookstore in Little Five Points Wednesday night, the owners of the bookstore and the executive director of Charis Circle made the major announcement that the store, now located in a small house with very little parking, hopes to have a grand opening of the new center — to be named the Charis Feminist Center — next March.
