For this weeks Go Local we are covering one of my favorite shops in Winter Park- Writer’s Block Bookstore! They have been serving the Central Florida area since 2014 as a full service independent bookstore. I discovered Writer’s Block back in 2020 when a friend strongly encouraged me to shop local for books, especially during the pandemic. While other businesses had fallen under during this time Writer’s Block flourished. In November 2020, they were able to open a second location in Winter Garden due to the high demand for a bookstore in the area.
Our commitment to literacy, reading, and community engagement for life-long learning is showcased through our events, book clubs, virtual book fairs, online Sunshine State and children’s book lists, and community partnerships. Specializing in new releases, New York Times best-sellers, Indie Next picks, and unique gifts and puzzles, we host virtual and in-store author events with nationally recognized authors and offer discounts for educators, book clubs, and other groups.
You can go in and browse for books or order online. Even if they don’t carry a book in-store they will have it ordered for you. They offer quick shipping and delivery times to anywhere in the continental US for a flat rate. After you’re done shopping for books make sure you stop and enjoy their little coffee shop located in the back of the store. There’s nothing like enjoying a new book with a cup of coffee!
