Welcome to Antigone Books!
America's First 100% Solar-Powered Bookstore

Welcome to Antigone Books

Welcome to Antigone Books, a zany progressive bookstore with a decidedly feminist slant. Antigone also happens to be the first 100% solar powered bookstore in the country.  We carry books for all ages plus a large selection of gifts and cards. Voted Tucson's best independent bookstore by the Tucson Weekly, we are located in the heart of Tucson's Fourth Avenue shopping district.

Thank you for supporting your local bookstore!

Made possible with the help of the community, three Antigone employees have successfully become the new owners!

In 1973, three women opened Antigone Books and named the bookstore after the Greek mythological character who stood her ground against male authority figures. Kate Randall and Trudy Mills owned the store for about thirty years. Now, meet the three women who are about to begin writing the next chapter of Antigone Books.

The new owners would like to say a huge Thank You to all who contributed to the crowdfunding campaign. Thank you's and perks are coming soon and can be expected in August 2018.
