Green Festival is proud to partner with local business, Women and Children First, to create a wonderfully diverse Green Festival Bookstore!
Located in a new location in a spirited and diverse northside Chicago community, Women & Children First began in a modest storefront in 1979. Staffers include teachers, graduate students, professional writers and storytellers, political activists, board members and poets. The purpose in beginning the store 31 years ago was to promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests. Women & Children First strives to do this in an atmosphere in which all are respected, valued and well-served.
