TORONTO WOMEN’S BOOKSTORE 97 Harbord,416-922-8744 You can always find small press works, obscure poets, graphic novels and cutting-edge fiction at This Ain’t the Rosedale Library, and Pages rocks for cultural criticism and a kickass mag section, but the grand prize goes to the Women’s Bookstore. Why? Because of its commitment to community (check out the calendar of savvy programming at www.womensbookstore.com), its not-just-forwomen stock (particularly sections on global, environmental and race issues), and, notably, because it’s managed to survive for over three decades. Ten years ago there were nearly 200 women’s bookstores on the continent; now you’ll find barely 30. The secret? Intense outreach to U of T profs, resulting in the sales of books for over 130 courses. Brilliant.
