Writers & Books Holiday Gift Ideas

Calling all last minute shoppers and local gift lovers!

Have you been too overwhelmed this holiday season to make a list and check it twice? Do you love gifts that help support literacy, creativity, and the local community? Then we’ve got some perfect gifts for your family and friends! Let us be your “one-stop-shop” this holiday season with these awesome gifts:

Writers & Books Vinyl Bags

Even Odd Vinyl Bags

How about a Writers & Books vinyl tote bag? Even Odd creative fabrics has taken our past event banners and made them into one of a kind bags. Hang a Big Read or Fall Festival of Reading bag from your mantle. $35.00.



Turning Pages Readers Circle Membership


Turning Pages Readers Circle is an excellent gift for the reader in your family. TPRC is our newest membership level – those enrolled receive a “mystery” book 4 times a year. Specially wrapped by our staff, the package comes with a note from an author affiliated with Writers & Books (previous contributors include Ann Patchett & Anne Panning) as to why they picked this book to share, and an invite to a special readers event surrounding the text. Members of the TPRC rave: “I was so impressed and delighted with the thoughtfulness and care that went into this…obviously, this was done with dedication and appreciation and gratitude. I feel richly rewarded already.” $250.00
