Now is the Time to Plan for Fall Events

Whether you are working to produce enriching events for your teams or your clients, Hooks Book Events can help you find the right author and topic for your audience. Contact Perry or Louise for your copy of the new Know Ahead List, bursting with new ideas we just learned about at the giant, annual Book Expo in New York. We also welcome the chance to chat with you about your needs and topics of interest. Please email us and we can set up a call!

A few of the summer and fall books we are excited about:

Your Bulk Orders Support Our Bridge Builders

Please continue to consider us for your bulk orders of 25 books or more. Denise is doing a wonderful job of taking care of our book order customers, and we are sharing the revenue from these orders to produce events for DC students in five area schools!

Summer Beach Reading

When we gear up for some time away from the office, we always have a book with us. Here are some titles we are reading during our summer travels:

  • Perry: A Woman of No Importance by Sonia Purnell
  • Louise: Park Avenue Summer by Renee Rosen
  • Suzanne: The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher
  • Denise: A Constellation of Vital Phenomena: A Novel by Anthony Marra
  • Sunny: Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Happy reading… and, don’t forget your sunscreen!
