We invite you to come shop, learn, support, and socialize with fellow book lovers at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum in Lake Mary, Florida, for this one-of-a-kind event! Writer’s Block Bookstore has partnered with the Karpeles Museum to help spread awareness and education on banned books, why they are banned, which books are being challenged and much more. The museum will be featuring their limited first edition signed copies of various banned books, including Fahrenheit 451, Alice in Wonderland, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and many many more.
