BOXCAR BOOKS

Events   Allies & Affiliates   

Non-profit, volunteer-powered and collectively run bookstore and community space that opened in February of 2002. Boxcar exists to promote reading, self-education, social equality, and social welfare through increased accessibility to literature and workshops- and the promotion of a community to support these projects. We are also home to the Midwest Pages to Prisoners Project, a non-profit group that sends free books to incarcerated folks throughout the United States to promote self-education and and aid in the rehabilitation process.

Located at 408 E. 6th St., Bloomington, IN 47408

Ask!

Hoax Zine issues 6-9 are now restocked at Boxcar Books!  Issue 10 is anticipated in October.

Hoax is a US bi-annual queer feminist compilation zine that aims to create a space to analyze the feminisms of our everyday lives. People of all lived experiences are encouraged to submit! Contributors do not have to identify with a particular gender and/or as feminists in order to submit work to Hoax. We ask that all potential collaborators, regardless of political and/or personal self-identities, actively agree to Hoax’s Core Values and Shared Goals before working on the project.
