The staff of The Writer’s Block stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. As business operators, we believe it is our place to show humility and clear space for the voices of this movement to do the talking. Now and always, we encourage you to support Black-owned bookstores across the country. You can follow this link to help you do just that. If you are able, consider donating to the Vegas Freedom Fund, which is working to bail out Las Vegas protestors. 


Please note our adjusted hours of operation: Monday–Saturday, 10am–5pm; Sunday, 12pm–5pm.

The coffee shop is available for takeout, but our seating and restrooms are closed to the public until further notice. We are not hosting events or workshops at this time.

For the safety of our staff and customers, we are limiting occupancy to 10 patrons at a time. Face masks are required, and will be provided if necessary. There is hand sanitizer 
available at multiple locations in the store, and we are disinfecting frequently touched surfaces every hour. 

The Writer’s Block continues to encourage use of our online store, and continues to offer curbside pickup and free media-mail shipping on orders over $20 (with exclusions applied to certain non-book items).

We appreciate your ongoing support, and look forward to serving you in person!
