Aunt Lute Books is a San Francisco-based nonprofit press dedicated to publishing literature by women whose voices have been traditionally underrepresented in publishing: women whose voices shift boundaries, challenge borders, and defy expectations. For over 30 years we’ve brought revolutionary queer women to the forefront of literature. Donate to our press to help support another 30 years.
In donating to Aunt Lute Books, you contribute to us in the following ways:
Internship program: Our paid internship program offers mentorship and training to young women of varied backgrounds interested in learning about the many aspects of a non-profit, feminist publishing press.
Programming: In addition to publishing, Aunt Lute Books is dedicated to building community and has a history of collaborating with local Bay Area organizations to host author workshops, readings, panels, and other events.
Here is what can happen if you donate: All donations are important, no matter how small the amount. GiveOUTDay.org awards monetary prizes to organizations that have the most donors in their region. This means your donation of any size will bring us closer to winning additional prizes! Additionally, we're giving away prizes to three randomly selected donors! Stay tuned for more info.
Events: Last October, over 200 people packed Southern Exposure’s art gallery to attend Aunt Lute’s San Francisco book launch for our recent release Good Girls Marry Doctors. We’re gearing up to bring you more San Francisco events late spring, so please stay tuned!
2016 Titles: Last year, we published three exciting new titles. Good Girls Marry Doctors: South Asian American Daughters on Obedience and Rebellion, Imaniman: Poets Writing in the Anzaldúan Borderlands, and El Mundo Zurdo 5. Follow us on social media for updates on book tour events near you!
Forthcoming titles: We’ve got exciting additions currently in the works, but we can’t announce them just yet. Stay tuned for more updates.
