Caring for our Community

October is the new December Buy Early Awareness reminder with giftsTo our Creating Conversations Community:

We hope all of you are doing well and finding some virtual comfort in family and friends and a good book or two. Although our in-store hours remain variable and limited, we are here for you. There is a bounty of books available on our website and we are busy stocking our shelves to prepare for a future when you can stop by and shop with us. In the meantime, we are happy to virtually shop with you if you are looking for something new to read. Please feel free to reach out to us by email or phone. You can usually reach us in the store M-F from 1pm to 5pm. We are here working to ensure that we will be here when you are able to visit.

And speaking of our store, we have expanded and enhanced our store. We added new sections and grew our curated collection. We are also hosting virtual events and book clubs and making plans to expand our offerings. Please feel free to reach out to us if there is an author/book you would like us to approach for an event of interest to you.


In the meantime, please consider Creating Conversations when you are looking for a new book, regardless of how you read them. This is how we can help:

*   Hardcovers and paperbacks: Our warehouse is shipping books as fast as they can. Simply search for a book on our website. If the note next to the book you would like to buy says that we can ship in 1 to 5 days, please order your book through us. We thank you for your book orders and your support of our bookstore.

*   Audio books, available for most books via our partners at All audio links are just below any book cover when on individual book pages.

*   Ebooks via our partners at Kobo -- you can even search for ebooks directly from our home page. Additionally, Kobo ebook links for any title may be found at the bottom of each book page.

Books are important to us and we know they are important to you too ... especially during these challenging times. Thank you for being part of our community.
