Trans rights are at the center of a readathon this week with Tubby & Coo's Mid-City Book Shop participating in the effort.
Through March 27, proceeds from the sale of books on the local bookseller's Bookshop.org Trans Rights Readathon page will go the Louisiana Trans Advocates, a statewide group that works for the human right of "self-determination and expression for all trans, nonbinary and gender nonconforming people in Louisiana."
Books on the list are categorized by science-fiction, fantasy, horror, romance, general fiction, nonfiction, children's books and teen books.
Tubby & Coo's is described as "a local queer-owned, progressive, nerdy, independent book shop," named after the owner's grandparents who grew up in the same neighborhood.
The shop is located at 432 N. Anthony St., Suite 305C, New Orleans. Visit tubbyandcoos.com.
