Administrative history

Bold Print Inc. was founded and owned by Joan Turner, who was at the time, an associate professor at the University of Manitoba’s School of Social Work. The Bold Print bookstore was incorporated in 1986 and opened its doors on 7 August 1986 at 478 A River Ave in Winnipeg. The bookstore moved into the lower level at 478 River Avenue in August 1991 at the request of the new building owner. The bookstore was financed and staffed by women and sold women’s books, music and art. It collaborated and hosted readings by women authors. Heidi Eigenkind became part of Bold Print in 1987 just after Herizons Magazine had ceased publication and Bold Print had just started. Anne Kent was co-manager. Shellyse Szakacs and later Sue Peterman were casual staff, while Patricia Rawson did the accounts. Bold Print was sold in 1994.
