Two Lines Press

We're encouraging readers to place orders for Two Lines Press books through Bookshop.org. Here's why: Bookshop gives a portion of every sale to independent bookstores, most of which are facing financial difficulties at this time. Additionally, as we are currently working away from the office, Bookshop is able to fulfill your order more quickly. It's a win-win-win. Thanks for reading.
