Old Wives Tales

In Uncategorized on July 7, 2011 at 4:36 am

Carol Seajay, founder of Old Wives Tales Bookstore (SF) is on the left. I interviewed her on April 11. 2011 in her home, in San Francisco. This photograph was taken inside the store, in the 1980s. Carol also founded the Feminist Bookstore News. Every person I called in California for an interview said to me, “Call Carol Seajay.”

Here’s a great article about her: http://foundsf.org/index.php?t​itle=Carol_Seajay%2C_Old_Wives​_Tales_and_the_Feminist_Bookst​ore_Network
“They opened Old Wives Tales on Halloween, 1976, paying themselves $200 a month.”
