Bookstore Events: Getting Creative and Building Community

  • 23-Apr-2024
  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Registration is closed

Events have always been a staple of any bookstore business. It’s a way to build your customer base, create excitement about new books, and drive sales. But in a post-pandemic world, publishers’ tour plans for authors are not as robust as they used to be and if your store is outside of a major urban centre, you may be missing out entirely. Never fear – if you think outside the box, you can still have your cake and eat it too! Get inspired by our panel of booksellers who are taking innovative approaches to curating bookstore events (including non-author events!), whilst building new communities of readers.

Host: Anjula Gogia, Another Story Bookshop (ON)


  • Susan Chamberlain, The Book Keeper (ON)
  • Shelley Macbeth, Blue Heron Books (ON)
  • Brandi Morpurgo, Daisy Chain Book Co. (AB)

Event time is listed as ET.
