Announcement    PLEASE NOTE: I generally go to the Post Office on Mondays and Thursdays. Please let me know if you need your book shipped on a tighter deadline.

Your reading needs are very important to me, especially now that we are asking so many questions of ourselves and our country: Where we've been and where we might go and how we'll get there. Great books have always asked these questions, and some of our answers can be found there. Please feel free to send me any inquiries about books that are or are not listed here.

Regarding my covid protocol: My books and packing supplies have always been kept in plastic boxes in a room closed off to the rest of my place. Now I am using gloves when I handle the books and create packages.

Karen's Book Row features recommended reads and hard to find books. I specialize in feminist fiction, LGBT+ fiction, African American authors, books from the counterculture, novels in translation, collectible books, and vintage children's titles.

Karen's Book Row is an online and pop up bookshop currently based in Pittsburgh, Pa. I've been working in bookstores and bookselling since 1997. I worked at a legendary literary bookstore in New York at the Turn of the Millennium, started selling on the sidewalk in 2013, and I currently work in a rare bookshop for my dayjob. I studied to be a librarian in the late 2000s, but decided to bring my reader's advisory skills back to bookselling instead.
