About Us

A Room of One's Own Bookstore has been a fixture in downtown Madison, Wisconsin since 1975.

A Room of One's Own is an independent, local bookstore: Room offers a wide selection of current and classic fiction, nonfiction, periodicals, graphic novels, local interest titles, gifts, greeting cards. We also have strong children's and young adult, women's studies and LGBT fiction and nonfiction sections.

Room's feminist community: We are proud to be a central part of Madison's women's community, and our roots in Madison's feminist community go deep. Our store has given us the opportunity to provide a meeting place, event forum, and safe space. We are happy to host community events. If your small book or discussion group would like to use our community room to meet, please call ahead to check availability at 608-257-7888. 

Web Orders and e-books: We are happy to be able to offer e-books, digital audiobooks through Libro.fm and web orders for in-store pickup or mail delivery through our website!
