Save New WORLD Theater!

We at Food For Thought Books Collective would like to strongly voice our support for and solidarity with New WORLD Theater.

As many of you have probably already heard, the University of Massachusetts has suspended all funding for New WORLD Theater and laid off their staff. While it is true that the economy is currently a difficult one, it is no reason to sacrifice what has been one of the most dynamic, diverse, and visionary programs of the whole Fine Arts Center at UMass. Not only that, we also stand to lose such essential youth programs as Project 2050.

How lucky have we all been to have these programs here in the Valley? Where else do we find anything like them? They are critical sites for the creation & production of new ways of knowing, of being and creating. We cannot let them disappear. For three decades they have imagined and struggled and given us all so much. Now is their time of crisis and it is time to stand with them - in gratitude, in respect, and in solidarity.

Please check out the Save New World Theater Facebook page to see how you can help and please offer them your support today.

Think again chum!

Check out this great new video from The Regulator Bookshop.

Shopping on the web and consider yourself "green"? Think again chum! You may just be breeding an ecological disaster in your own backyard...

Closed for Inventory: July 6th & 7th

We're going to be CLOSED for inventory this upcoming Monday, July 6th and Tuesday, July 7th. We're going to be counting books and counting books and, then, we'll probably do some book counting. And then we'll count the cards, and bumperstickers, and buttons and pretty much every other little thing in the store. It's so much fun we can hardly stand it. That's why we close the store: to keep the fun to ourselves.

As such, what we won't be doing is answering the phone or opening the door. Unless you come with home-baked cookies. Then we will let you in. But only then, ok? Basic chocolate chip are fine with us but feel free to get fancier if you feel the urge. :)

See you again on Wednesday!
