cafe con libros
coffee. tea. books. art. community.


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.

gendered conversations...

What would you say if you knew that everyone is truly listening?

Stories are powerful to read on a screen, but they are most impactful when exchanged in person. Join us for Gendered Contradictions, an interactive storytelling dinner experience that brings 14 strangers - 7 men and 7 women - together to deconstruct some of the everyday assumptions, biases, or contradictions we each carry inside. 

Conversations and activities will be facilitated by Cassandra Lam, co-founder of The Cosmos, and Bianca Ng, artist and visual storyteller. This dinner is hosted in collaboration with Take Up Space, an annual storytelling project by Bianca Ng.
