let's collaborate...let's create.

cafe con libros is a feminist community bookstore catering to folks who are book lovers, coffee aficionados, or both.  we aim to provide space for anyone seeking a community of readers and thinkers and, to spread the love of reading as a source of healing and joy.

cafe con libros will also provide community programming to include a book club, book fairs for children and young adults, prison outreach, and when possible, host local artist.

in solidarity with our community, we wish to open our space for use in collaboration with community members in service of broader, collective endeavors.  beginning 1 august 2018, the cost for the use of the space is $50 for two hours.  this contribution is non-refundable.  in addition, we ask that organizers encourage participants to patronize the community space by purchasing coffee, pastries, and/or books to ensure sustainability for the long-haul.

lovingly, 

kqd & rfc.

Directed by Isabella Bretón, written by Gabriela Ortega and produced by Nicole Coiscou, "A Rebellious Act A Day" is an audiovisual project showcasing everyday micro-agressions Dominican women experience, while empowering them through small acts of rebellion. 

The short-film has performances by notorious local actors and celebrities such as June Gómez, Marcos Mañon, Cynthia Guzmán, Lo Blanquito, Nicole Lockward, Natalia Azar, Lauren Bowcutt, Paloma de la Cruz, Lola Lora, Paloma Richiez, Pamel Mancebo, Carlos Durán, Sergio Echenique, Marina Frías, JJ Sánchez, y Kat Montes. During its Santo Domingo premiere, organizers expected a hundred attendees, but had to screen it nine times for the five hundred people audience.
