An Event For Every Reader

We like to think that our events bring some of the best things together: books, readers, authors, conversation, wine, food… Whatever combination suits you best, we bet you can find it below.

Page Pairings

7:30 pm, Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, $30, Once a Month
Join us for a book-inspired wine tasting! We pair six wines with six books for a night of fun browsing and sipping. Your ticket includes a full tasting as well as your choice of one of the featured books. As a bonus, bottles of the featured wines are sold at a discounted rate.

In conversation

5:30 pm, Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, Free, Dates Vary
Join us for an intimate and stimulating conversation with an author! To start, we’ll listen to the featured author converse, often with a carefully chosen conversation partner, then follow up with Q & A’s and a book signing. This is a free event!

Teacher Happy Hour

5:00 pm, Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, Free, Once a Month
Calling all teachers for a special night out! With a teacher ID you’ll get a free glass of our house bubbles and receive a 15% discount on any purchase. These nights are always a blast. Sometimes we have raffles, always we have fun. We try to keep them on the third Thursday of every month, but make sure to check the dates in case of changes.

Storytime

10:00 am, Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, Free, Every Tuesday & Saturday
Where are our little readers? Join us for Storytime on Tuesdays and Saturdays. One of our booksellers will read through a big stack of our children’s picture books, then offer kid-sized cookies to close out the festivities. This is a free event!

Pop-up events

10:00 am, Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, Free, Saturdays
Pop-Up events are just what they sound like: informal chances to meet new authors and vendors in the local area. You can find these at booths set-up in-store some Saturdays, so come by and say hi!

Book Clubs

Our book clubbers show up with a desire to discuss… most even read the book! We provide moderators to organize and facilitate, and we run the gamut of topics.

TripLit

TripLit takes the escape in reading literally. Join us for trips inspired by the books we love to travel through! We put a whole lot of stock in the power of stories to shape the way we see the world, and we believe books can illuminate the place we are, as well as take us where we’ve never been before. This is just a really fun way to live it out.
