Let's talk events!

It's our 3rd annual Be the Rainbow event in historic Cocoa Village! We have a full day of activities scheduled that are created to honor our diverse community - allies are welcome, and colorful attire is encouraged! Rainbows, unicorns, tutus... wear anything and everything that brings you happiness when you put it on! Visit the Be the Rainbow page here on our website!
Weekly & Monthly Scheduled Events
LAST Wednesday of every month: hello again books Book Club (6:30pm-8pm). 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!
Fridays: LGBTQ+ game night (6:30pm-8pm). Hang out, play a card game, enjoy a beverage, and if you so choose, meet some people! Allies welcome! Mainly for the 18 and over crowd, but we'll welcome a young teen or good kid now and again! (follow us on FB and IG just in case we decide to do an outing!)
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-4pm). Bring your knitting, crochet, needlepoint, beading, 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!
Special events happen all the time! For exact dates and times for all events follow us on Facebook or Instagram. If you’re not social media savvy/friendly, visit 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!
