COVID-19 UPDATE: Our store floor is currently open for browsing. Masks are required (we have extras available for $1 if you don't have one with you). We are not currently hosting any events inside the bookshop, though we have a few outdoor and/or offsite events on the docket for summer and fall 2022. We are still doing book clubs by meeting virtually (and occasionally in person as voted on by each club), and we have a small number of Zoom (virtual) author events/discussions coming up. We hope to resume our in-store events once it's safe to do so, but for now we appreciate your understanding as we scale back our offerings.
Literary events bring books to life. We love to have authors visit Avid and talk to us about their craft and inspirations. But the real magic happens when an event connects people in our community; a shared love of books forms quite a strong bond!
We delight in having events of all kinds, ranging from author visits, cooking demonstrations, open mics, and film screenings, to book clubs, coloring nights, and artist workshops. Our goal is to connect our community in fun and interesting ways, while bringing the joy of literature and art to all.
If you are interested in an event for a book from a major publisher, please email our events team here at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a local author (within 20 miles of Athens) with a smaller publisher or have self-published a book, please click here to fill out the form.
