Women & Children First
Disabled-Owned LGBTQIA+ Owned Woman-Owned
Women & Children First began in a modest storefront in 1979. Over the years we've moved twice and are now in the north side Chicago neighborhood of Andersonville, known for its diversity, queer-friendliness, women-owned businesses, and community spirit. Our staffers include graduate students, professional writers and storytellers, political activists, board members, and poets. Each of us is a reader, a feminist, and a bookseller. Our purpose in beginning the store nearly 40 years ago was to promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests. We strive to do this in an atmosphere in which all are respected, valued, and well-served. That is our purpose still, online as well as in the store.

“I was awed by Michallon's ability to create such vivid portraits of every character in this book, while keeping the tension so taught, I had to remind myself to breathe. The "family man with a dirty secret" trope is not new, but giving all the power of storytelling to the victims in the killer's sphere, was fresh. That in combination with Michallon's atmospheric writing make this a must-read thriller. ”Destinee • East City Bookshop
“The women have finally had enough. They have all been wronged in some way by Jamie Spellman even if one of the seven has yet to acknowledge this fact. They begin meeting to discuss their pain and hurt and hopefully to find some way to get back at him....Then they receive a call from an anonymous number to meet in the secret room they have been using because of an undisclosed emergency...This clever but definitely dark mystery is told from 7 points of view of the women who knew Jamie, plus...”Nancy • Fiction Addiction
“Ander & Santi Were Here is the queer YA book the world needs right now. Filled with so much queer joy, profound queer love, and delicious Mexican food, it'll warm your heart, bring tears to your eyes, and make you want some tacos ASAP. Avi Roque's narration brings all the characters, but Ander in particular, to brilliant riotous life, and the depiction of immigration injustice will ensure Ander and Santi get lodged in your head just as much as your heart. ”Lauren • Chapterhouse Books
“This fun and quirky audiobook is the perfect listen for summertime. I can always count on Katherine Center to deliver a great “beach read” and this one is no different. When a portrait artist all of a sudden finds herself unable to see faces - including her own! - her entire life gets spun upside down. Great narrator, too! ”Madison • Saltwater Bookshop
“This book rocked me to my core. Adjei-Brenyah's writing is soul-shifting. He gives us a devastatingly unvarnished look at the US carceral system and a warning for what may to be come. The deep, multidimensional characters evoke empathy, empowerment, and sometimes disgust. I have never read a more evocative work of fiction. The audiobook is worth it for Singer's voice alone, but the entire cast is stunning. ”Grace • The Novel Neighbor
“A roller coaster of a story! Three very different women's lives coalesce around the shared experience of bearing an unfair amount of their families' mental load and wanting to do something about it. The dynamic female characters doing the vulnerable work of learning and growing through setbacks and through new opportunities left me feeling inspired. I binged the audiobook and yet didn't want it to end! The narrators brought the characters to life. The Wife App evokes grief, anger, laughter,...”Grace • The Novel Neighbor
