We are Central Florida’s full-service independent bookstore, located in beautiful downtown Winter Park. Serving the Orlando area since 2014, we have all your favorite books—and of course, this year’s Sunshine State Young Reader Award longlists and winners. We also offer teacher discounts and other perks in our robust Educator Discount Program; if you’re a teacher and not already a member, you can sign up for free!
We understand that during these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever to get kids reading and learning. We are offering virtual book fairs for schools to keep home libraries stocked! The Program is customized to the organization's age groups and interests. We curated a custom collection that is separated by age and genre. If your school or organization is interested in a book fair program that could support the teachers, students, families, and our independent neighborhood bookstore, please reach out to Adriana@writersblockbookstore.com In the meantime, check out our customizable virtual book fair template here.
We will make your book fair online, and 20% of the fair’s earnings will be paid back once all the orders have been completed. We can have your school’s virtual book fair ready in just two weeks! ! We can keep your book fair site live for a few days, a week, or several weeks.
Not only can your families select books for their children, but they can also buy any book. The family can choose from the list on the right that has the entire world of books to choose from or select from currated lists we have created for all types of interests for books we currently have on our shelves.

We have been working hard with all the major publishers, and they are sending us lists of authors who would like to do virtual school visits in the fall. We stopped counting how many authors are offering to meet students, whether in the media center or the virtual classroom. Please fill out the attached form and let us know what kind of authors you would like to host! A lot of major authors these days are unable to travel but can virtually visit you anywhere—including Central Florida.
