Book authors in the NWU have taken a strong position against
mega-bookstore chains, since chains negatively impact the diversity
of titles available on the market and the ability of mid-list
authors to sell their work.
This holiday season and throughout the year, we encourage you to
support independent bookstores and especially www.powells.com ,
an independent and unionized bookstore. Powells has a great
website, offers free shipping, and currently has a promotion
whereby you can win $500 towards your next vacation by checking
out new travel titles.
In addition to supporting independent and unionized bookstores,
the NWU encourages you to purchase union made and non-sweatshop
