Cultivating Literacy: Empowering Communities Through Harriett’s Bookshop and Tree House Books

2 min read

Nestled in Philadelphia’s vibrant Fishtown neighborhood, Harriett’s Bookshop stands as more than a mere purveyor of books. Conceived by the visionary writer and educator, Jeannine A. Cook, the store embodies the courageous spirit of its namesake, Harriet Tubman, by honoring the legacies of women authors, artists, and activists.

Beyond the confines of its bookshelves, Harriett’s serves as a nexus of community engagement. Hosting an array of events, from enriching author readings to inspiring art exhibitions, the shop fosters meaningful connections among its patrons. However, Cook’s dedication to literacy transcends the physical boundaries of her establishment.

Harriett’s unwavering commitment to democratizing access to literature finds perfect resonance with Tree House Books’ “Books in Every Home Campaign.” Championing the amplification of marginalized voices, Harriett’s has curated a wish list for Tree House Books, enabling supporters to directly contribute to the cause. By purchasing books from this list, not only do patrons bolster a local Black-owned establishment in Philadelphia, but they also gift a child with a literary mirror that reflects their own experiences. Simply remember to mention Intellectual Ink Magazine with your order to ensure your contribution counts towards our collective drive.

Harriett’s Bookshop stands as a stalwart advocate for initiatives promoting childhood literacy and equitable book access, particularly within underserved communities.

Conveniently situated at 258 E. Girard Ave., Harriett’s Bookshop beckons bibliophiles with its thoughtfully curated selection and warm ambiance. Whether you’re embarking on a quest for your next literary adventure or seeking solace among fellow book enthusiasts, Harriett’s offers an unparalleled experience at the heart of Philadelphia.
