Reception

Holiday Open House

Check out the best books of the season as you mingle with the bookstore community and enjoy food and drinks.

CANCELLED: Customer Appreciation Day!

Due to the impending hurricane, we will unfortunately have to cancel this event. As it turns out, books are best enjoyed dry, not damp. 

Join us from 1-4 pm for an informal customer appreciation celebration! We'll be providing coffee and beer, a scavenger hunt, and a special social media promotion: take a picture of your favorite book and tag us in it for 10% off your purchase today. 

Banned Books Week 2017: Read. Resist.

Come celebrate with us and hear Texas authors and librarians read excerpts from their favorite challenged or banned children’s and YA books! Take Instax pictures reading with your favorite banned or challenged book, come dressed as your favorite controversial character, and of course enjoy our Banned Books-themed snacks.

CANCELLED - UH Creative Writing Program Voices Showcase

Houston is the Bayou City, Clutch City, Magnolia City, Screwston, Space City, Sprawl City, The Energy Capital of the World, and, of course, H-Town. It’s a city of bayous and bodegas, a city of sirens and skyscrapers, a city of live oaks and live music and lots of living, working artists, quite a few of whom have made their way here through the University of Houston’s Creative Writing Program, which, year after year, welcomes and nurtures (almost) as many new and original voices as the city has nicknames. Join us as we celebrate a few of these voices and start the new school year off right.

Brunch Planner Party

Here's an opportunity to share your love of planning! Bring your bujos, stickers, pens, washi tape, and your ideas for productivity! We'll have discussions on time-saving ideas.

All this over lovely pastries and mimosas (because brunch, of course)! 

Paper and Pen Pal Club

Sara and Ülrika are back to write more letters to Keep St. Pete Lit, our literary partners in Florida. Write about your favorite book of the month, something you liked from book club, or a choice pick you think others would enjoy!

Bullet Journaling: Hand Lettering and More!

Join us for our last official Bullet Journal workshop of 2017! We'll be going over what we've learned so far, learning some more hand-lettering, and focusing on future logs to prepare for the new year. 

And, of course, rosé.

You can find Paulina's PDF guide to hand-lettering here.

Bullet Journaling 103 with Ülrika

Our Bullet Journaling workshops continue! This time, Ülrika will be leading everyone through the concept of collections (What are they? How do you build one?).

As always, this event is free! We will have practice sheets for calligraphy, free samples and fun accessories, and a RAFFLE for a few great items.

And, of course, rosé.

Share this event with friends on Facebook.

In addition, we will be hosting a DJ set by DAMN GXRL, a Houston booking collective devoted to the inclusivity of performing arts spaces for female, queer, trans and non-binary artists, musicians, and performers, as well as for event attendees and employees.

Refreshments will be served.
