Happy Summer Book Lovers!

June marks the 1 year birthday for Callisto Crate! We can’t believe we’ve put out a years worth of strong woman reads boxes already — and made so many wonderful connections with local and artisan vendors in BC and across Canada.

To celebrate, we are holding a contest for a FREE 3 month subscription. Look for this post on Instagram or Facebook. Like and share it, and tag friends for a chance to win, but be fast because the contest ends June 30.

June Unboxing

Our June book was… Bina, A Novel in Warnings by the super talented Canadian author Anakana Schofield.
Bina is quite a character, so honestly spoken and engaging that we couldn’t resist her.

We’ve included locally made PB + Chocolate Granola Clusters from Nuts 4 U Granola to represent the Crunchies in the book, an envelope notepad because Bina writes largely on envelopes, a warning sticker of your own, an enamel pin with a David Bowie lyric because Bina dreams of David Bowie, a bookmark and an exclusive author interview, and, as a final touch and a birthday bonus, we’ve included a pen!

July Theme Reveal

Our July Theme is Road Trip

This is a road trip like no other, perfect for summer reading, featuring 3 heroines who make an unlikely, yet compelling, trio. This heartfelt, humorously told expedition across the country also explores the companions’ journey through their relationships, future expectations, past hurts, and what keeps us going.

There are only a few boxes left, so click here or on the image above to reserve yours now!
