About Us

The Moon shines a light on the stories of so many wonderfully talented authors, creators and makers who may have slipped under the radar of the mainstream. Books at The Moon are specially curated with the aim of addressing the historical gender imbalance in Anglophone publishing, with an especial focus on writers and artists of colour. In a world that has increasingly lent itself to the persecution of difference, we believe now more than ever in the importance of safe spaces that celebrate, not limit, the value of diversity and multiculturalism. Our commitment to inclusivity is reflected not only in our selection of books, but also in our menu options, which are designed to accommodate all dietary restrictions and choices. Our cafe extension and event space on the third floor is open to private bookings as well as free community events. While you’re up there, be sure to dip into our communal lending library (or donate a used book of your own!)
