To celebrate the release of Mechanic Shop Femme’s Guide to Car Ownership, Chaya’s going on tour. Throw what you think a book tour should look like right out the window because this book tour will turn everything on its head. Instead of hosting a signing at bookstores, Chaya will be crisscrossing the country, visiting mechanic shops, and connecting with you face-to-face.

You’ll get to meet the Mechanic Shop Femme in person, get your book signed, and connect with a local lesbian-owned mechanic shop – and who knows, it might just become your new go-to mechanic.

Please preorder your book from Barbara’s Bookstore. Mechanic Shop Femme’s Guide to Car Ownership will not be available for sale at the book signing, so please bring the book with you.
