Editor's Corner (March)

By: Amy Reynolds

Two new books will arrive in the bookstore this month, Why I March: Images From the Women's March Around the World and Why We March: Signs of Protest and Hope - Voices From the Women's March. Both books cover the Women's March of January 21, 2017, when five million people in 82 countries stood up to be heard. These books celebrate the inspiring moments of the Women's March when so many gathered in support of racial justice, health care, freedom of religion, LGBTQ rights and more. The turn out in Traverse City shocked the organizers with participants in the thousands, when they had hoped to have a few hundred.

Horizon Books opened in 1961 and in the 56 years since then has recognized the activism, outspokenness,  and the embracing of new ideas that Traverse City embodies. Freedom of speech is precious to us. We offer books that give historical and thoughtful perspectives on controversial subjects for critical, meaningful discussion and action.

We honor those who bravely marched for their beliefs and freedoms. Reading is knowledge, knowledge is power. March is Women's History Month. Let's celebrate!
