E. Jean talks with Becka, the Executive Director of WLT about the start of the bookstore, the role the bookstore plays in the community and future projects.
ENDA'S BOOKTIQUE is an independent bookstore located in Duncanville (Dallas), Texas, founded by Enda Jean Pemberton Jones, an African American educator and chaplain. She comes from a legacy of educators, activists, and ministers. Her mother is a community activist. Her father was an educator and minister, and her grandfather was a minister. Also, a prominent member of her family, H.B. Pemberton, was the founder of the first black high school in Marshall, Texas.
ENDA'S BOOKTIQUE is part of E. Jean’s mission to connect women and families in her community to equitable and quality educational and literary programs and resources. The mission is accomplished through the bookstore’s collection of curated books which are written by women, about women, and for women. Enda's BOOKtique hosts community, author, and special events, as well as literacy, reading, tutoring programs, and GED prep programs. We celebrate and support independent literacy and STEM projects from women of color and from women of diverse cultures and heritage.
ENDA'S BOOKTIQUE has space for book signings, special events, lectures, and study sessions for college and graduate students. To learn more about our programs please contact us.

Enda's Booktique is committed to improving literacy within its community among women and families. Our efforts are done so through friends of Enda's Booktique, who donate items, resources, time, and funding towards helping us to make a difference in our community.
We provide literature and support to Bridging the Gap for College and Career Readiness Program for Teens.
The program consists of four modules.: Literacy, STEM, Finance and Budget, and Career and Entrepreneur.
The goal is to engage teens with literature, increase interest in STEM, promote disciplined money habits, and encourage innovation, ingenuity, and independence.
"Bridging With Love" swag bags are donated to connect those with needs to resources within our community. Often individuals and families struggle and suffer due to lack of resources. These bags are filled with donated gifts and essential items given to individuals and families in need.
