Join the KAN Books Co-op!
Place your books, art and products in the store in exchange for a membership fee and volunteer hours to the store. Know Allegiance Nation Books or KAN Books is a worker co-op created to support Michigan artists and authors of color to have more brick and mortar places to sell their work. Members help keep the store open by working shifts in the bookstore, inventorying products, collecting donations, recruiting new members, and being support during KAN Books and Co-op member events. Co-op members get a vote and can help shape the future direction of the co-op bookstore.
Payments from products a co-op member places in the bookstore goes directly to co-op members minus any fees from processing (Square or Paypal payment processing fees). Product payout is provided at the end of the month to co-op members. Additional benefits include discounts off space and equipment rentals, inclusion in our online marketplace, and placement of products at KAN Books vendor tables. Co-op meetings are every third Thursday of the month from 6:30-8pm.
