Bound Together Bookstore is an Anarchist collective-run bookstore featuring radical literature and events. History, politics, feminism, LGBT, fiction, and Noam Chomsky are major subject categories and available new or used.
Bound Together Bookstore was founded in 1976 to provide hard-to-find books on urban do-it-yourself subjects, such as bicycle repair. The collective gradually realized they shared a common belief in anarchy and added this focus in 1983.
What is anarchy? There are many flavors of anarchy, but the general understanding about anarchy is that there is no leader [an=without, archy=leader].
The collective has about 15 members, operates by consensus, and is open to new members. They volunteer their time to operate the bookstore. Joey Cain is both a member of the collective and a HANC Board member. The collective hosts discussion groups and speaker events, including the Anarchist Book Fair with numerous speakers (this year, Saturday, March 31, 10-6 pm and Sunday, April 1, 11-5 pm, at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park, near 9th Avenue and Lincoln).
