events

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 helloagainbooks@gmail.com. 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:

More on NaNoWriMo

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 helloagainbooks@gmail.com or send us a message on FB or Instagram.
