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 trans femme-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 – Jai Santora spent 20 years fixing cars at dealerships and a family-owned mechanic shop before deciding in 2014 that it was time to open her own shop – Santora Automotives. She wanted to be able to assist customers personally and ensure their problems and needs were heard. Jai serves the community with compassion so everyone, truly everyone, can get their cars fixed without fear of being belittled or exploited. 

“I was always disappointed with the misogyny of the industry. I wanted to create my own place where all would feel welcome,” Jai says. “Our mission is to provide automotive service the way it should be. Fair, Friendly, and for everyone. Our facility provides exceptional automotive services free from discrimination based on heritage, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, or any other uniqueness that doesn’t fit societal norms.”
