Tia Chucha’s is the only independent bookstore/cultural center for thousands of people in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. We recognize that books and knowledge must be accessible to communities that have long been worthy of a local bookstore that reflects their culture, histories, stories, and values. Our inventory selection is guided by our firm belief in the transformative healing power of art and literature.
At Tia Chucha's we specialize in providing great books on Xican@/Latin@ history and literature, indigenous knowledge, and bilingual children's books. We also stock books on contemporary and social commentary issues, young adult fiction, as well as Spanish-language, queer/LGBTQ, art, poetry, and much more.
Independent artisans and vendors are welcomed to sell their items at Tia Chucha’s on a consignment basis. Contact our bookstore co-coordinators to inquire about details.
We appreciate your conscious choice to buy your books from us. Every book, gift certificate or other purchase supports Tia Chucha’s dream of community empowerment. If a book is not in stock, we can order it for you! Orders can be made in person, over the phone, or by e-mail.
