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.

About the shop – Demeny Pollitt was tired of being taken advantage of at the mechanic’s, so she decided to take matters into her own hands and become a mechanic herself. After graduating tech school, Demeny worked at a few dealerships before opening her own full-service repair shop, Girlington Garage, located in South Burlington, VT. The full-service shop offers state-of-the-art diagnostics, alignments, tire repair, brake service, oil changes, state inspections, and more. Girlington is known for its inclusive and welcoming environment and is committed to offering high-quality car repairs with complete transparency. Bonus: they give out free cookies to customers at every visit.
