Celebrations with book trade

Celebrations with book trade

Congratulations to Carole on her MNZM - celebrations were held at The Long Room and saw a wonderful turnout from the booksellers, publishers, authors and book lovers.

Carole Beu has supported the literary industry in New Zealand through voluntary activities and The Women’s Bookshop, which she opened in 1989. She was awarded a New Year's Honour, and is now a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit.

Congratulations Carole and thanks for your vision and leadership.  




We were thrilled to be mentioned in Metro magazine's Best of Auckland as the Best Bookshop for the #metoo era.

'Riding the waves of feminism for nearly three decades, The Women's Bookshop is a relevant right now as it was when it opened on Dominion Rd back in 1989. As much a community as a shop, customers helped with the move to Ponsonby 10 years later, where the bookshop - and founding owner Carole Beu - remains. The original focus on books by, for and about women has broadened over the years to welcome men, both on the shelves and in the store but the emphasis on subjects of particular interest to women continues.'
