Hey, all you cool cats! Who’s up for our next hotsy-totsy night of zooming around town?

(If by “zooming around town,” you mean attending a Zoom webinar.)

Let’s face it. We’ve had a rough entry into this century’s “Roaring Twenties.” But that doesn’t mean that we have to lose our connections: to each other, to our work, and to the ecosystem of publishing and bookselling. On the contrary, now is an ideal time to explore all the ways we can still connect with each other. That’s why SCBWI PA West is proud to present…

The Roaring Twenties Virtual Bookstore Tour!

On the 20th of each month, we are hosting a virtual tour of an independent bookstore in our region. Booksellers will provide tours through their currently quiet stacks and storerooms, answer questions about the art and science of selling books, and forge new relationships with writers and illustrators like you. If you hope to host your own book events in the future, your region’s loyal indies are the best places to start. Why not get to know these lovely booksellers from the comfort of your own home?

(Yes, comfort can absolutely mean pajama pants and the beverage of your choice.)

The third stop on our tour is White Whale Bookstore, an independent bookstore that has quickly become a literary hub in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Bloomfield. White Whale’s knowledgeable, friendly booksellers frequently host author and community events, including writing workshops and children’s story times. We will virtually tour the store on Saturday, June 20, at 10 a.m.!

Each bookstore tour will take place as a Zoom webinar. Links will be emailed to registrants prior to the event. Registration is $5 per tour and will support a contribution to the hosting bookstore. Each tour will also include a door prize from that store: a gift card, shopping pass, merchandise, or something else that is truly the bee’s knees.

So, what are you waiting for, sugar? Register below!
