Christina Pascucci Ciampa, owner of All She Wrote Bookstore

Christina Pascucci Ciampa

Christina Pascucci Ciampa is the founder/owner of All She Wrote Books. All She Wrote Books is an intersectional, inclusive feminist and queer indie bookstore that supports, celebrates, and amplifies underrepresented voices through its thoughtfully curated selection of books spanning across all genres. 

 

As a survivor of domestic abuse, she went digging for stories that she could relate to, and found that they were out there—but they tended to get less shelf space and be shortchanged by publishers and book reviewers. Being an avid reader, she often felt unrepresented by bookshelves and online recommendations showcasing what was already popular. 

 

Christina started All She Wrote Books by partnering with local businesses in Somerville such as the Canopy Room at Bow Market and Winter Hill Brewing Company, asking them if she could bring my 3-shelf, beige Ikea cart of new and used books written by these authors and set herself up in a small section of their stores. In July of 2020, All She Wrote Books opened its brick-and-mortar location at Assembly Row in Somerville, and will be celebrating its two year anniversary this July.  

 

When Christina is not at the bookstore, she is spending time with her partner, Chris, and her corgi puppy Ruby, as well as family and friends. You can also find her at community garden plot harvesting some really good tomatoes and eggplants this year.
