What is a Story Stop, you ask? We’re glad you asked!

The format of each “Story Stop” is flexible to allow for creativity, because—after all—that’s what we as writers do. Each Story Stop is focused on supporting local authors and the indie bookstores that enrich our communities. Books of all authors participating will be highlighted and sold.

Each “Story Stop” on Kris Spisak’s virtual book tour for The Family Story Workbook will be a curated evening where local authors will take the virtual spotlight, sharing memories from their own lives that capture the importance of preserving family histories and/or how family stories can shape us into the people we become.

Indie bookstores have always been essential pieces of our communities, allowing readers to find empathy and meaning through stories, and we’re living in a moment when we need to listen to and understand each other more than ever. By bringing together local authors and audiences of readers, these events are also designed for book sales to support the booksellers doing so much for us all, as always.

Kris Spisak wrote her first book, Get a Grip on Your Grammar: 250 Writing and Editing Reminders for the Curious or Confused, with a goal of helping writers of all kinds sharpen their craft and empower their communications. Her “Words You Should Know” podcast and “Grammartopia” events follow the same mission, as does her second book, The Novel Editing Workbook: 105 Tricks and Tips for Revising Your Fiction Manuscript. Kris’s past events have been held for standing room only crowds at bookstores, libraries, and craft breweries, and she has also spoken at universities, military commands, business seminars, and on the radio and television.
