HOW WE WIN BY GEORGE LAKEY

Please join us for a book talk with George Lakey, who will be here to discuss his recent book, How We Win

"How We Win has arrived to us at another key moment in our human journey. It is a guide for our collective liberation, informed by decades of Professor Lakey's ongoing research and teaching since the '60s. Following these steps will indeed help us achieve a more just and humane society." ⁠— Rev. Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change

ON THE CLOCK: WHAT LOW-WAGE WORK DID TO ME AND HOW IT DRIVES AMERICA INSANE BY EMILY GUENDELSBERGER

Author Emily Guendelsberger will be here to discuss On the Clock on August 8th!

"Guendelsberger can go from light-hearted to dead-serious on a dime, writing with a conversational, contemporary, and heavily footnoted bent... This clear inheritor to Barbara Ehrenreich's seminal Nickle and Dimed (2001) is bound to open eyes and change minds." ⁠— Annie Bostrom, Booklist

Longfellow Books
Our Used Book Buying Policy

• We pay store credit for used books, not cash.

• Our buyers cannot process any books on the spot.

• We pay approximately 30% of what we decide to charge for a book. So if we price something at $8, we’ll give you $2.40 in store credit for it.

We take one bag or box at a time, and you can drop off books whenever we're open*. We will call you once we go through your books (it takes us about a week, unless we’re buried very deep) to tell you how much store credit you’re getting.

           *We may go through periods when we get overloaded and have to temporarily pause, so please call or check our website before bringing books in.

• We take many different kinds of books (paperbacks & hardcovers, fiction & nonfiction), but our selection varies with supply & demand.

However, we usually will not buy:

           •Books that are in generally poor condition (torn or yellowed pages, missing dustcovers, split spines, etc.)

           •Books with underlining or highlighting

           •Textbooks and outdated reference books (travel guides, etc.)

           •Non-book items (magazines, journals, calendars, DVDs, CDs, etc.)

•Currently, we are not taking kids books or young adult/middle reader books, cookbooks, or oversized coffee table/art books.

• If there are books we don’t take, we can either donate them to Goodwill or you can pick them back up. We will ask your preference when you drop them off. If you elect to pick books back up, we ask that you pick them up within 7 days of when we contact you. After that, we reserve the right to donate them.
