Author Events & Promotion
We love hosting events for local as well as national and even international authors and illustrators. We can host events in our store for up to 130 guests, or at outside venues such as schools, libraries and other public venues we are fortunate to connect with. Here are some of the many ways we work to have your event be a great success!
Note: If you are an author interested in hosting a book launch or other event, please have your publisher or publicist contact us. If your book is self-published please inquire about our Indie Showcase yearly event.
Books and event displays in front of store on chalkboard or in store window several weeks before event. Flyers available at counter and outside of store.
