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!

One thing: Before we get into the specifics: these events may change or be modified, so we recommend you check us out on social media (Instagram and Facebook) or give us a call if you're thinking of coming in! 

Let's talk events:

Upcoming Special Events:​​
  ​​

  • March 26, 10am-3pm: Historic Cocoa Village Book Fest
    Enjoy a family fun literary day in the village, with local and guest authors throughout the shops & businesses. Authors will also be in Myrt Tharpe Square (the gazebo area), presented by the Space Coast Writer's Guild. In addition to authors galore, there will be a 'story walk' in which you and the little ones can walk around the village to read a children's book displayed page by page in the windows of participating stores! We'll also have a set of 6 bookmarks that you can collect throughout the day when visiting locations where authors are stationed. The Brevard County Mobile Library will also be on-site for everyone to enjoy!

 

  • April 30, ALL DAY: Independent Bookstore Day!
    Join us as we celebrate the diversity, creativity, and community that makes a truly independent bookstore! We'll have giveaways and a full day of celebration and we recognize the joy that books bring into our lives and our village!

     

  • April 30, 1pm: Guest Author, Robert N. Macomber
    Also on Independent Bookstore Day, we have award-winning Maritime author, lecturer, and world adventurer, Robert N. Macomber! Macomber is best known for his Honor series, "depicting thrilling highlights of the U.S. Navy's critical role in the expansion of America from a continental country n the mid-19th century into a global power in the early 20th century." The Florida Writers Association Inc., named Macomber the 2020 Florida Writer of the Year, so this is sure to be a fascinating presentation!

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!

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!
