With a flexible floor plan that can accommodate about 20 adults, City Books is an ideal venue for small lectures, readings, and author/artist’s events, as well as casual parties and mixers.

The store sponsors one event a month, usually on Tuesday nights, highlighting local authors or those with a strong Pittsburgh connection. Similarly, City Books observes well known literary celebrations, such as International Children’s Book Day, Independent Bookstore Day, World Book Day, and Banned Books Week.
