What we do.

We host a variety of events at A Novel Idea, from author readings and signings to workshops to book clubs and story times. We have numerous events that run monthly, such as our open mic, book club, and pay-what-you-can tarot salon. We also host the Philadelphia Poet Reading Series, that features four different local poets and runs every few months. Our goal is to offer regular events to the community that are interesting and innovative. To stay up to date on A Novel Idea events, check out our calendar.
