  • 164-16 Sanford Ave, Flushing, NY 11358

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 woman-owned mechanic shop – and who knows, it might just become your new go-to mechanic.

Preorder from Books are Magic to ensure your book arrives on time. Books will not be available for sale at the book signing, so preorder and bring the book with you.
