Shelf Awareness presents Reading with ... Patricia Engel:

"Favorite line from a book: 'There are years that ask questions and years that answer.' --Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God. I love this line, though I think some years, like 2020 and even what we've seen so far of 2021, do both."

Our Story

Creating Conversations is a bookstore and author event business dedicated to keeping the value of reading, learning and sharing books in our communities. Even in this digital world, we believe that books and authors continue to educate, inform, and entertain us in important and invaluable ways.

Over the past decade, we have expanded our presence at author and book events. You can find us in pop-up book stores throughout Southern California (Los Angeles World Affairs Council, Noir at the Bar, L.A. Times Ideas Exchange), at large literary festivals (LATFB, Yallwest, Pasadena Festival of Women Authors), partnering with community organizations (public, private and charter schools, AAUW, public libraries), supporting businesses' author speaker series (Google, Northrup Grumman), and creating and hosting our own original programming (Ladies Lunch and Literacy, Books are Better Shared, Breakfast Business and Books).
