A Novel Idea hosts a variety of events, from author readings and signings to workshops to book clubs and storytimes. Owners, Alexander Schneider and Christina Rosso-Schneider, residents of East Passyunk, book lovers, and parents of Atticus Finch, a crazy, but lovable rescue pup, hope to create and foster a space of diversity and inclusivity. They want to help their customers fall in love with books, either for the first time or the millionth. They have numerous events that run monthly, such as their open mic, book clubs, and pay-what-you-can tarot salon. Their goal is to offer regular events to the community that are interesting and innovative. To stay up to date on Novel Idea events, check out their calendar.
