To celebrate Black voices, we are collaborating with The Artful Life Counseling Center & Studio and North Shore Juneteenth Association Inc. on Saturday, May 21!
There will be a book fair curated by our booksellers, a Black Artisan's Fair and a collaborative mural!
The best part? We'll be donating 20% of book fair proceeds to benefit North Shore Juneteenth Association Inc. RSVP at the link below!
Celebrating Black Voices: Collaborative Collage and Book Fair will take place at the Artful Life Counseling Center and Studio, 142P Canal Street, Salem, MA 01970. This event will be a drop-in event so you can come and go. Masks are required inside and we will be having much of the tables outside, weather permitting.
This event will consist of a book fair with children’s books curated by us on the first floor with plenty of fresh air from Artful Life’s open glass garage door. The books will be by Black authors or Social Justice issues. 20% of proceeds will go to benefit North Shore Juneteenth Association. There will also be tables hosted by young Black artists and additional organizations such as Youth Build and the North Shore Chapter of the NAACP.
Upstairs in the spacious movement room, there will be the Collaborative Collage project in honor of Romare Bearden, an accomplished Black American artist that used collage as a technique to create his art. Guests will be able to participate as a community in making a collage that speaks to the theme of the event, celebrating Black voices, and learn more about Romare Bearden. This is family friendly event but all all ages welcome!
Copper Dog Books is so excited to collaborate with North Shore Juneteenth and Artful Life Counseling Center and Studio for this celebration of the community coming together to celebrate Black Voices!
With a rich Caribbean setting and a grieving yet spirited Black heroine, Stringfellow's debut is a refreshing take on mermaid folklore and wish-themed fairy tales. - Alyssa
In a not-so-distant future, Goliath paints an eerily accurate picture of an America divided between white people living in the space colonies and BiPOC people living in the post-nuclear wastelands. Jumping between multiple perspectives and time periods, Onyebuchi tackles gentrification, environmental justice, racial profiling, and racism with his signature raw powerful voice. While bleak and infused with rage and pain, this sci-fi epic is thought-provoking and all-too timely. - Jessi
