Honolulu’s oldest bookstore is settling into a new home.

For almost 40 years- Revolution Books has carried literature for UH Students as well as in political science, women’s studies, and workers’ rights. The little store has served as a community center as well – hosting discussions, poetry readings, and small concerts.

But earlier this year a backlog of debt almost closed its doors – and prompted a crowd funding campaign which collected more than ten-thousand-dollars. Now, rising rent has forced the shop to move to a new location on the 2nd floor of University Square. Carolyn Hadfield is the General Manager of Revolution Books. 

Revolution Books is hosting a re-opening celebration this Sunday at 1pm until 5pm.
