Thank you for choosing to meet here at Scuppernong Books. Our goal is to provide a
comfortable community meeting space that allows for both serious intent and frivolity—ideally at the
We generally do not charge for the use of our space. Since we don’t charge, our hope is that the community groups, book
clubs and audiences that attend our events will recognize that we must make money to survive. We ask that you consider buying our coffee, beer, wine and food while you are here. We cannot allow outside food, with the possible exception of
birthday cakes/cupcakes, etc. We have an excellent catering menu if you'd like to order for your group, or a number of small plates, salads, and assorted goodies each attendee may order for themselves. If you have any questions,
please give us a call at 336-763-1919.
All catering must be ordered five days in advance of reservation date.
We also hope that book clubs in particular will consider buying their books at Scuppernong. We will
offer a 10% discount to all book club specific purchases. For those attending readings, consider
supporting both the writer and the store by buying the highlighted book. Or any book.
There are very few spaces that can survive without charging for use. Imagine trying to meet in a fast
food restaurant—or any restaurant—without purchasing something. We recognize that there’s
something different about an independent bookstore. Our relationship with our customers is certainly
not just economic. We love the conversation, the community spirit, the sense of engagement in our city.
We also want to continue to be here to enjoy all of that.
