What's Going On at the Shop?

Between our monthly book discussions, local authors’ book signings, poetry readings, and community events that we participate in, there is always something interesting to look forward to.

Here at the Curiosity Shop we work to stay engaged with our town and community. We love to connect with local writers, and sponsor author events and book signings. Our book clubs meet monthly for lively discussions and comfortable camaraderie among friends, old and new. With so many wonderful events, organizations and businesses in our small town, our community is always at the heart of our work. 

Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.” – Leo Burnett
