The Day has come: A new chapter for Edinburgh's radical bookshop!
Elaine has hung up her bookselling boots, but the bookshop lives on with a new owner!
Worry not: the bookshop on West Nicolson Street will remain true to the legacy Elaine and the Word Power community has worked so hard to build. We will continue to be unapologetically political, we will celebrate diversity of thought and expression, and encourage readers to engage with ideas both from the margins and mainstream.
Though we'll be staying true to the spirit of Word Power, we do need a wee lick of paint, and some armchairs and a boiler for the free coffee to come. So, the bookshop will be closed for a couple of weeks as we make our transition - doors will open again on April 24th and our official relaunch will take place in the bookshop in early May, all are welcome!
Keep an eye out for regular updates on twitter and facebook, do shoot us any questions you have -and if you fancy wielding a paintbrush, lugging books around or sharing a cuppa do swing by and join in!
