Known for its popular “Book Riot”, Women’s Place is excited to announce it will be hosting series of Sunday “Mystery Box Book Sales” to keep Niagara’s book lovers reading this summer.
Who: Women’s Place Book Riot Committee members, volunteers and employees are organizing and will be staffing this event.
What: Prior to each sale, a list of categories available for sale will be listed on the Women’s Place website at womensplacesn.org/womens-place-book-riot. When individuals arrive at the sale, they can request one or more boxes from each category which will be available while quantities last. Boxes are pre-packed and the contents are a “mystery” other than the category that the guest selects (e.g., mystery, romance, history). Small boxes will be sold for a minimum $10 donation. Large boxes will be sold for a minimum $20 donation.
When: Every Sunday from July 11 to August 29 (except August 1) from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Where: Apple Self Storage, 4655 Kent Ave, Niagara Falls.
Why: The Women’s Place Book Riot, which usually takes place in June at the Gale Centre, has been cancelled for a second year because of continuing restrictions on gathering sizes. Each year, the sale generates over $70,000. While the Mystery Box Book Sales will not raise the same amount as a typical Book Riot, they will provide desperately needed fundraising revenue to support local domestic violence services. We also look forward to sharing some of the books donated by generous donors in our community, and hope the book lovers will be excited about the opportunity to discover new authors and subjects when they open their “mystery boxes”.
