Charis Books & More

Charis Books & More, a cozy bookstore located in a purple house in Little Five Points, opened its doors in 1974. That makes this shop the South’s oldest independent feminist bookstore. As such, this bookstore specializes in feminist and cultural studies titles, diverse and unique children’s books, books on anti-racism, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer fiction and non-fiction.
