We’ve come up with what we think are some exciting events, but if you have a fun idea for our hello again books community, talk to us while you’re in the store or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re open to suggestions!
For example, if you’re looking for a place that isn’t your living room to hold your book club, we’re the ideal location. We offer beer, wine, coffee, tea, desserts, pastries, and other snacks in a comfortable environment so you don’t have to clean your house. It’s a win-win.
One thing, before we get into the specifics: these events may change as we get to know you better, so we recommend you check us out on social media or give us a call if you're thinking of coming in!
Let's talk events:
Upcoming Special Events:
October 27th, November 24th, December 29th, 6:30pm - Bookclub
Always wanted to join a bookclub? Join ours! We meet, talk books, share details about this and that, have a drink, and mainly enjoy the company of other readers! If you show up, you have a voice in the selection of the next book! No RSVP required; just show up and be your sweet self!
November 7, 11-3pm - Be An Icon!
A fun cosplay-like event: Dress as the icon you know you are, the icon you plan to be one day, or an icon you admire!
December 4th, 5pm - Bookstagrammer Get-together!
Are you a bookstagrammer or want to be?!? Come meet some of the amazing people who are talking about and taking gorgeous pics of books and related content! We'll have some big names from the Florida area! Chit-chat about your approach, gossip about other bookstagrammers (LOL!), and make a new friend!
Mondays: Closed (sad face)
LAST Wednesday of every month: Book Club (6:30pm). We host our own book club every month and invite readers to join us for a lively discussion about the book and anything else that might come up! Also, if you want to use our space as your book club locale, send an email to email@example.com.
Other random Wednesdays: Movie night (6pm). Usually related to something we've been talking about at LGBTQ+ game night or bookclub, but you never know! (follow us on FB and IG for updates!)
Fridays: LGBTQ+ social (6:30pm-8pm). Hang out, play a card game, enjoy a beverage, and if you so choose, meet some people! Allies welcome! Kinda an 18 and over crowd, but we get an older teen now and again!
On certain Saturdays: Storytime! (11:30am). Show up and listen in! (follow us on FB and IG for updates!)
On certain Saturdays (1pm): Author events. Enjoy learning about books written by local authors! They'll talk about their writing process, their book, and how they got it published. Most authors stay for questions and sell copies of their book at the event! (follow us on FB and IG for updates!)
Sundays: Sit & Knit (12pm-2pm). Bring your knitting, crochet, needlepoint, or yarn-spinning and enjoy our space while crafting with other like-minded peeps. Might be the perfect time to find a new pattern and make a crafty friend or two!
Other hello again books events:
Theme nights, RE: Harry Potter birthday celebration, Jane Austen lovers unite, and other literary-themed events
Viewing parties for movies based on books
Creative writing groups
Resume assistance events
Homework & study groups
Events we haven't even thought of yet! Maybe you have some ideas? Let us know! We're here for YOU!
Coming again soon: Wear your Tiara Day! Come in wearing a tiara and you'll get 10% off your purchase! Feel free to add a fancy dress, suit, or other fun costume to accent your tiara - why not, right? Plus, we'll take pics and post on social media, so everyone can enjoy in a socially-distanced manner! Had a lovely Tiara Day on 1/23/21 - check out social media for pics!
For exact dates and times for all events follow us on Facebook or Instagram. If you’re not social media savvy/friendly, come to the store and talk to us!
We Support NaNoWriMo Participation
Yes! We're talking about the National Novel Writing Month event, which takes place every November. Basically, you commit to writing a certain number of words every day so that at the end of November you have a complete first draft of a 50,000-word novel. A NOVEL that YOU wrote.
Have you been thinking about writing a book? THIS is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor and be a part of a community of writers who can support you through this journey. There are events throughout the year to get writers writing... so join in anytime!
Honestly, we've been thinking about doing this for years, but have never made the time or the commitment. You know what: there's no time like the present! Let's get started, so when we hit November we are a small but supportive group of writers ready to join the thousands of others around the world who accept the challenge of writing a novel in a month!
Interested? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on FB or Instagram. We'd be happy to sit with you and talk about your writing project!
