The Lower East Side Pride Book Crawl will return to New York City June 11, amNY reported, noting that last year "five book stores on the Lower East Side held the first LES Book Crawl. Led by Bluestockings Cooperative, a queer, trans and women-owned feminist bookstore that has been in the LES community for over 20 years, the crawl aims to celebrate the diversity and resilience of the neighborhood's indie bookshops by offering discounts, free drinks and special giveaways."
Coinciding with Pride Month, the book crawl stores will highlight titles by and about the LBGTQ+ community, offering queer New Yorkers and book lovers alike a chance to participate in an all-ages activity. Participating bookshops include Bluestockings Cooperative Bookstore, Book Club Bar, Sweet Pickle Books, Yu & Me Books, McNally Jackson and Pillow-Cat Books.
