Here’s a sample of regular events you can look forward to:

AUTHOR NIGHT

We’re proud to host acclaimed local and national authors. Engage with them in an open dialogue as they share their work, hear them reading excerpts from their books, and learn about their writing process. Books are available for sale in the store and authors sign their books after their appearances. Many frequently linger to chat with the audience.

GRAMERCY BOOK CLUB

Celebrate the latest releases in an engaging community book discussion facilitated by a community expert who brings contextual insight to the book being discussed. 7pm, fourth Tuesday of every month, unless noted otherwise. 

POETRY NIGHT

Evenings focused on poetry, from readings to workshops. 7pm, fourth Thursday of the month. Launch of new poetry collections may be held on alternative dates, as noted.

Curated in partnership with award-winning singer-songwriter Eric Gnezda, founder and host of the nationally syndicated TV series, Songs at the Center and music devotee Alec Wightman, whose Zeppelin Productions has promoted national act singer-songwriter concerts in Columbus since 1995. Stay tuned for upcoming events.

    Gramercy Book Club’s March selection, American Dirt, by Jeanine Cummins, has been called “an urgent, blistering, unforgettable book.” In her portrayal of a mother and son forced to leave their Mexican home, Cummins has given face to migrants everywhere who flee violence and near-certain death in search of a chance at life. The discussion will be facilitated by Monica Ayala-Martinez, Director of the Latin American and Caribbean Studies concentration at Denison University.
