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!

(Two generations at the current Antigone counter: Kate and Trudy circa 1995; Morgan, Kate, and Melissa in 2018)

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 by August 2018.

All About Love by Bell Hooks
Available for 20% off!

As Bell Hooks uses her incisive mind and razor-sharp pen to explore the question "What is love?" her answers strike at both the mind and heart. In thirteen concise chapters, Hooks examines her own search for emotional connection and society's failure to provide a model for learning to love. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation.
