They've started an online book club so you can read books together before they open their doors. Check out their blog for pairings & recipes.🍷 (πŸ“·: @harlanyoung ) ✨ @culturedbooks - They just helped @keepstpetelit curate their book wish list for their fundraiser to buy books for 4 South St. Pete schools, so the kids can see themselves reflected back in the books they are reading! πŸ‘Š They're open every Sunday from 1-4 pm. NEXT UP: They're hosting the Int'l Children's Film Series at The Royal starting in January - A family film series celebrating films from around the world, sponsored by @deuceslivestpetemainstreet. ✨ @keepstpetelit - This amazing organization is doing great things in our community! From the aforementioned Book Drive (you can donate here: facebook.com/donate/507228336551196/2478340279048095), to the Creative Writing classes they'll be offering at @academy_prep_stpete to getting children & seniors reading together - all these are in addition to their writing classes & workshops, open mics, book club & more! We're thrilled that they will be part of @thefactorystpete! πŸ™Œ ✨ @tombolobooks - If you haven't already heard, Tombolo has found its brick-and-mortar home in @grandcentralsp, next to fellow KSPL members, @blackcrowgrandcentral & @squeezejuiceworks! 🏑 They need a wee bit of help to get those doors open this month, so please consider donating to Indiegogo campaign: https://igg.me/at/Tombolo. We're thrilled to see them opening, after FOUR years of planning, and KSPL has been part of that journey since they first moved here! We're honored that they've shared the reason they chose to live in St. Pete is because of KSPL! πŸ’• #StPeteSupportsHer x 5! πŸ’–
