Andrea’s Auto – Edgartown (Martha’s Vineyard), MA

  • 04-10-2024
  • 519 Edgartown Rd, Edgartown, MA 02539

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

Preorder from Nantucket Book Partners 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 – Andrea’s car needed a timing belt but the veteran and single mom of two simply couldn’t afford it. So, she did the obvious and asked a mechanic to borrow some tools and figured out how to change it herself. They offered her a job on the spot. Andrea spent 10 years working at that shop before buying it and calling it Andrea’s Auto, located in Martha’s Vineyard. The full-service repair shop will fix nearly anything wrong with your car. Best of all, Andrea is on a mission to teach others and offers car and motorcycle maintenance classes for interested customers.

Ticket sales will fund the Jill Trotta Scholarship, launching in the fall of 2024. The scholarship will provide financial assistance for tools, tuition fees, and other necessary requirements for women and queer individuals who are entering this field.
