Harriett’s Bookshop is an avant-garde bookshop celebrating women authors, artists, and activists under the guiding light of Harriett Tubman. Jeannine Cook opened Harriett’s in 2020 as sort of a monument to Harriett Tubman, and to create a space for community to dialogue around important issues. Visitors to Harriett’s will find books from a variety of styles and genres, but the works of Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and Octavia Butler will always be present. Those are what Cook describes as the “foundational texts” of Harriett’s Bookshop. Cook envisions Harriett’s as more than a bookstore, but a community-centered place where literature moves the community into action.
