This holiday season we send a simple message, one we’ve extended before but
think all the more important now—SHOP LOCAL! We know it’s sometimes
easier, and often cheaper, to click-and-send a gift. But small, independent
stores like Point Reyes Books depend on you for survival. We think
books—and bookstore gift certificates—make perfect gifts. They delight,
instruct, inspire, entertain, teach, and console. They open the mind and
touch the heart and spirit. We carry an array of books selected to appeal
to your many interests—and ours. If we don’t have what you want, we
can usually special order it. Just drop by the store and ask. Even if you
live outside West Marin, you can still support the health of our
independent bookstore. To place an order, just call us at
415-663-1542 or email
Each year Point Reyes Books customers (we call them Book Angels) purchase
books for local children who have few books in their homes—more than 300
books last year. We sponsor this project in collaboration with West Marin
Community Services and local schools who help us select the recipients.
Book Angel books are now available in the bookstore. If your angel wings
can't get you here, just call us at

New directions, new compass points, new trails across new terrain: and
that’s just part of what we have in store for you at the
2015 Geography of Hope Conference: Mapping a New Geography of
Hope—Women and the Land. Registration opens December 8.
West Marin artists are invited to submit artwork by December 15 for
consideration in a juried group exhibition at the 2015 Geography of Hope
Conference. The artwork must relate to the Conference theme: “Mapping a New Geography of Hope: Women and the Land.” Curator
Tracy Taylor Grubbs explains, “We are looking for artwork that brings
the ideas and perspectives of women into a new view of land and nature.”
Art selected will be on display throughout March, 2015, at
Toby’s Gallery in Point Reyes Station.
February 7, 2015. Save the date! Join Kate Levinson for this exciting
one-day convocation bringing together feminist thought leaders in finance,
culture, psychology, and religion. We’ll explore our deeper, personal, and
spiritual relationships with money beyond dollars and cents. We’ll consider
the multiple roles money can play in our culture and our communities. And
we’ll uncover language and emotion that truly reflect women’s inner
experience of money.
Point Reyes Books, in looking for ways to continue to thrive while still
serving our community, created our Community Supported Bookstore program.
