Please read before placing an order:
Many of these and like-minded titles about anti-racism and diversity building (which we carry all year round at the store) are currently on backorder because of the high demand. Please feel free to order them and when they become available we will let you know. It is best to keep books on "Backorder" or "Available to Order" on separate orders from those "On Our Shelves Now" so we are able to expedite your orders. Publishers are currently reprinting many of these titles and stock is expected on many to become available later this month.
