If you are looking for another local bookstore that is not of the big-box variety, check out the Footprints Café! Located just over the bridge in Buzzard’s Bay, Footprints Café is a Black-owned, woman-owned bookstore that focuses on people and authors of color. A coffee shop is due to open soon, too!
You can find them online at www.footprintscafellc.com and at 43 Main Street, Buzzards Bay, MA. They are open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Stefanie Corbin, owner of Footprints Café, participated in the 2022 Woods Hole Black History Month Celebration with a virtual book reading of two children's books, I AM EVERY GOOD THING and The Me I Choose to Be.
