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 E. Jean, 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 readings, author's book signings, special events, literacy, reading, tutoring programs, and GED prep programs. Enda's BOOKtique celebrates and supports independent authors, independent literacy and STEM projects from African American women, women of color, and women of all races with 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.
