These are difficult times for everyone, including The Poisoned Pen Bookstore and staff. The Pen is now closed to browsers but open for curbside pickup and phone or internet orders. Our events are being reimagined as virtual through mid April. Further virtual or postponed events will be announced as we work through the rest of April and evaluate May. We are balancing everyone’s safety with supporting authors faced with reaching out to fans in new ways.
Don’t hesitate to order books or audiobooks through the Web Store. https://store.poisonedpen.com/ You do know you can order order audiobooks from the Pen, don’t you? If it says “Buy Audiobook” under a title, you can just click on that and it will take you to Libro.fm where you can order your book on audio through The Poisoned Pen.
Looking for something to do while you’re stuck at home? How about listening to a Podcast of your favorite author? There are a number of them available at the Pen’s site, https://poisonedpen.podbean.com. James Rollins, Michael Koryta, Douglas Preston, and Gregg Hurwitz are just a few of the authors who have recently talked with Barbara Peters, owner of the bookstore.

There will still be announcements, reviews, award postings, and an interview or two. Maybe you want to build it into your daily routine to stop by and read what’s happening. We’ll be here and online on Facebook and Twitter. Check us out.
