Dear Second Shelf Supporters,

Happy Summer to you!

We had anticipated sending out our surveys a couple weeks ago, but are still hashing out details on production of The Second Shelf merchandise and have been held up on rather boring details of batches and quantities and affordability -- and we want to make sure those shirts, totes, and posters are as beautiful as possible before sending them to your mailboxes this fall. Please be on the look out to fill out a survey, coming to your inbox soon, so we can get your perks exactly right.

We've also been finalizing the design of the first issue of The Second Shelf: A Quarterly of Rare Books and Words By Women, getting back to our website design, attending events, and spreading the word about the need to feminize the bookshelves at Virginia Quarterly Review, The Paris Review, and Books and Papers Fairs, and just today at Lithub, and we are selling books, too. We had a booth at the Idler Festival, will be attending the Cardiff Book Festival, the Brooklyn Antiquarian Book Fair, the Brooklyn Book Festival, where we plan on selling the first issue of the quarterly. 

We are also pursing a potential retail space with absolutely no certainty much will come of it, but we believe it's worth investigating. We promise to keep you updated, as we'd love for you to visit. All perks are still on schedule to deliver in September - cross your fingers for us during this wild few weeks!

Warmest wishes,

Allison Devers, Proprietor
