Antiracist Reading for Teens

Our present moment serves not only as a call to action, but an opportunity to educate ourselves and our community about the underlying issues that led to the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many, many others. 

This list focuses on books recommended for readers ages 13 & up. You can find a list for young readers here, and adult books here

Not all titles are readily available in-store now, but we are working to get them into your hands as soon as possible.

Curbside Pick-up is available now daily, 10a - 3p (except 1 - 2p on Wednesdays). All orders must be placed online and paid for in advance.
