For a not-so-typical take on Austin history, visitors can experience the ghastly tales of this historic city on this storyteller-led haunted walking tour. Get ready for a good scare as you head out for your nighttime adventure to uncover tales of ghosts, murderers, and the spooky stories in between.

We visit Austin from the Washington DC area 2-3 times a year to see our grandkids. Each time I make it a point to visit this bookstore. It is a small, independent bookstore that seems to specialize in books written by, about, and for women and those on the feminine spectrum. Yet, this place is so much more. Book Woman offers books, gifts and special events of community interest. During this most recent visit, I had a chance to hear author Marion Winik read from ‘The Big Book of the Dead.’ This unexpected drop in had me in the midst of a reading. My very first visit had me checking out their extensive area of books on trans* health. At the time I was in the midst of research for a simulation on trans* healthcare for nursing students at the community college where I taught. Another time I visited and spent a couple of hours marveling at the unique collection of children’s books from which I snagged a few for the grands. Books about black feminist thought, adoption, surviving trauma, LGBTQQIA politics, sensuality, sexuality and many more topics line the walls of Book Woman. If you are interested in reading and still enjoy the tactile experience of a book (no shade to the Kindle readers), fancy unusual gifts and those with even social justice messages, this is the place for you. Check it out. Surprises everywhere.

Curated bookshop and curated by someone very well read and wise. There is just one copy displayed of every worthy book on ubiquitous as well as difficult subjects. Aging. Fat. Domestic violence. Sex. Political theory. Comics. Lgbtq. First rate poetry collection. Male authors too which shows owner's fairness and inclusivity. This bookshop alone has sold me on Austin and all of Texas.
