[54] Meg Niesen, owner of The Irreverent Bookworm

“One of the reasons why I love used books so much is the connection to the person who held the book before you.” – Meg Niesen

Meg Niesen is the owner of The Irreverent Bookworm, an independent, woman and family-owned bookstore on the corner of 52nd St. and Bloomington Ave in South Minneapolis. The Irreverent Bookworm is a warm, welcoming space that encourages literacy and love for the written word throughout our diverse community of friends, neighbors, and fellow bookworms everywhere. They carry a thoughtfully curated selection of high-quality used and new titles, gift items, and other discretionary oddities.

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
