Summer Book Exchange

Bring a book, leave with a book

Sunday, July 9, 2017
1:00pm - 3:30pm
$10 + membership 
Includes: coffee/tea + a treat

Loved book reports when you were a kid? So did we! Still wish you could do them? Well, now’s your chance. Our Summer Book Exchange is an opportunity to share a book you love with other devoted readers and learn about books beloved by them. Bring a book, spend a pleasant Sunday afternoon with fellow bibliophiles, and leave with a book. Sounds a little bit like heaven to us (but then we’re a bit nerdy that way)!

Ready or Not

Start a new creative project and feel like a better human

Saturday, July 8, 2017
10:00am to 3:00pm
$75 + membership 
Includes: workbook, coffee/tea, snack, lunch + dessert

Ready or Not is one of our signature workshops and has helped people think about, plan, and prepare for their next creative project. If you have a creative project that you want to start— whether you’re “ready” or not—this is for you. Past projects have included everything from writing and illustrating a graphic novel, to re-starting a creative business, to writing linked short stories, to documenting a family’s story.

“I was unprepared for the effect this workshop would have on my outlook, which is much more positive and hopeful. Determined! The workbook, as facilitated by Jill and Andrew, is an in-depth, easily navigated template to manage all my projects with.”

— Jean Oliver

“What an amazing, supportive environment. I really felt welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed the process of working together to further our individual creative goals. I can’t recommend these guys enough!”

— Elisabeth Hazell

We had such a blast with the first iteration of Prompts + Pints—where people wrote about Sea-Monkeys, eating inappropriate things, and people named Chuck—that we’ve decided to do it again. Join us for prompts, beer (or tea if you prefer), and popcorn and get that pen moving again!
