Tò-uat, meaning “Turn Left” in Taiwanese, champions a reading culture rooted in social justice and human rights. Our event-based initiatives spotlight political, social, and cultural texts. Our physical space acts as a hub for civil society groups, facilitating both public gatherings and private meetings. We embrace diverse involvement in social justice conversations, championing issues from same-sex marriage to labor rights and Taiwanese independence. Beginning in 2016 as a bookstore-cum-café, Tò-uat Books has evolved into an independent non-profit association, thereby broadening our societal influence.
