We can’t do this work alone.
Lucky Jefferson x The Book Worm Bookstore
“Not only do we want to partner with more Black-owned and women-led organizations and businesses, but we also want to partner with folks who want to see change in the industry just as much as we do. Leaders who aren’t afraid to think outside of the box.”
When Lucky Jefferson, began rethinking what its partnerships looked like, teaming up with The Book Worm Bookstore was an easy decision.
The Book Worm Bookstore, situated in Powder Springs, Georgia, first opened its doors in October of 2005. Julia Davis, a children’s book author, took ownership in November 2020 when the former owner retired. The Book Worm Bookstore brings the best in literature, from international best sellers, local literary giants, and a vibrant growing community that is as diverse as the books on their shelves. They are home to over 30,000 titles in a wide variety of genres!
At Lucky Jefferson, our mission is to publish social change. That means publishing work that promotes change in our world; that effectively depicts the nature of our world and creates inclusive spaces for all to share their stories. The Book Worm Bookstore is one of many leading this effort to shine a light on underrepresented narratives.
And so, Lucky Jefferson x The Book Worm Bookstore was born. To support an upcoming candy-themed event at The Book Worm Bookstore, taking place June 2022, Lucky Jefferson rereleased Cookout, an issue celebrating food-centric gatherings and community. Updates include a new cover, updated activities coinciding with the event, and more.
Participants in The Book Worm Bookstore’s candy-land-inspired event will have the chance to win prizes, including a $100 gift card to the store.
