Upcoming Events at The Bookworm

The Bookworm is proud to offer signed copies of Omaha's own best-selling author, Rainbow Rowell (as supplies last). It is through the generosity of Rainbow that we are able to maintain signed stock of her titles, and the Bookworm is incredibly thankful for her support. 

A holiday personalization run is currently open, until December 8th.
To order a personalized copy:

  1. Select the book(s) you would like, and add them to your cart.
  2. In the comments secion you must write either:
    • JUST Signed
    • or the correct & complete spelling of the name the book is to be personalized to (i.e. 1st copy of Wayward Son to Carl, 2nd copy of Wayward Son to Hannah, etc.)
  3. Please note that personalization requests are at the discretion of the author. Generally, she will not write quotes, answer questions, etc. A personalization request should be the name of the recipient and maybe a greeting (i.e. Happy Birthday, Congrats, Happy Christmas, etc.). Again, all requests are at the discretion of the author.
  4. Any comment sections left blank will just be signed and any comment that just says "personalized" will be assumed to be personalized to the "Ship to" recipient.

If you have any questions or queries, email carl.erickson@bookwormomaha.com

Saturday, December 7 / Noon – 3 p.m. | Pet lovers and their furry friends are invited for the 13th annual Santa Paws event for Hearts United for Animals. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand to pose with pets. Elves from the University of Nebraska at Omaha will take a photo of the pet on Santa's lap and turn it into a very special holiday card to be emailed to pet owners. The fee is $25, with a $5 discount if you bring a donation of pet supplies. All proceeds go to Hearts United for Animals, a no-kill shelter and animal welfare organization. Hearts United receives no government funding and exists solely on donations and the all-volunteer staff. The annual event is sponsored by the UNO chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). For the last 13 years, students have planned the event and donated the proceeds to a local animal shelter or rescue groups.





Sunday, December 8 / 1 p.m. | Nancy Rips and her grandson Noah will sign Noah and the Eight Trucks of Hanukkah ($16.99). Noah is a young boy who loves Hanukkah, but his favorite thing in the whole world is trucks. Why aren't they part of the Hanukkah celebration? In this story, Noah devises a way to have a Festival of Trucks along with the Festival of Lights, each honoring the brave Maccabees.
