Welcome to Antigone Books, a zany, independent (and 100% solar-powered) bookstore. We carry excellent books for all ages plus a large selection of fabulous gifts and cards. Voted Tucson's best independent bookstore by the Tucson Weekly, we are located in Tucson's unique 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.
Have you met the new owners? Here is the wonderful video created by Aaron Cargile and Beverly Seckinger from the U.A. Film Department.
Enormous thanks to Aaron and Beverly for their excellent work, generously donated to the cause.
