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

events.

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.

NeverSays Book Tour and Signing

I often write about things that are uncomfortable to talk about. What I hope is that I can trigger people to think about things from a different perspective and to get people talking about things with a level of empathy. My desire is to foster communication and to build understanding by honestly sharing myself.

One Love- Randi"

Randi Bryant has successfully leveraged her experience as a corporate diversity trainer, her widely-followed societal commentary blog, and her inaugural published book, Neversays, to create an unparalleled training and speaking platform on the issues of diversity and inclusiveness. Her seventeen years of experience in providing diversity and inclusion training through her company, Bryant Consulting Group, provided firsthand experience on the importance of creating and fostering an inclusive environment to organizations’ financial bottom lines through enhanced employee engagement, improved performance and the ability to avoid the economic and time costs associated with discrimination claims and lawsuits. She honed both her fresh insights and her unique voice through her blog, Beatnik24.com, in which she explores all aspects of race and culture in the United States.

These efforts culminated in her recently published book, Neversays, and its unique philosophy that most people are good people, but remain woefully uninformed about how to communicate across racial, gender, national origin and other societal lines. The Neversays model avoids philosophical ponderings in favor of practical, concrete tools that people can employ to foster inclusivity and to improve their day to day interactions and communications.
