Feminist Organizing Across the Generations will soon be on shelves of the Philadelphia Free Library

Since my book Feminist Organizing Across the Generations was still unavailable at the Philadelphia Free library during Women’s History month, I published excerpts from Part I on www.the-next

Although the author copies were mailed at end of November, I did not receive them until the end of March! I was told that the first shipment “was lost in the supply chain.” The second shipment was delayed because it was misdelivered by Fed Ex.

When I finally received my author copies, I delivered several copies to the Free Library. The process of getting it onto the shelves takes a few weeks. So—-fingers crossed--it should be available to borrow very soon! It should also be available through inter-library loan.

The publisher, Routledge, markets to a global audience so when I checked availability on World Cat, I found that there were copies in a range of libraires including the American University of Nigeria and the American University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates—but none at the Free Library of Philadelphia!

At some point this ridiculously overpriced book should be available in paperback and also as a reasonably priced ebook!

I now want to pivot to my next book--The Evolution of Socialist Feminism from Eleanor Marx to AOC. I need to put this book on a fast track while I still have eye sight and brain cells left.
