Every month we host various events at Spellbound, including Author Events, Children Story Time, Book Clubs, Game Nights, and more (see image for details). We post reminders and updates on our social media pages so make sure you are following us there to stay in the loop: Follow us on Facebook | Follow us on Instagram
The demand for Author Events at our bookstore has grown as word spreads of who we are and what we offer here at Spellbound. We are so grateful for this growth and hope that it continues in the future, however we are not able to fulfill all requests for Author Events. Therefore, we have come up with a process for future Author Events that will satisfy most requests:
Local Author Events - We have two options for Local Author events:
Conversation with an Author & Book Signing - These are events we host in-store where a Staff member interviews the author in a short Q&A, members of the audience can ask questions after the discussion, and there is a book signing at the end. We will take photos of the event and post it on our Instagram and Facebook pages. For these events we will prioritize Local Authors who are part of our Book Consignment Program. The Staff will select 1-2 books each month from our Local Authors Shelf to read (we will choose genres that appeal the most to our Customers). If there is a particular book we enjoy, we will reach out to that Author to set up an Author Event at Spellbound. If you'd like to host your own Book Launch, Author Q&A, or Book Signing, see the last bullet labeled Private Local Author Events.
Meet & Greet - Meet & Greets are events where an Author is set up with a table inside of our store and customers/guests drop by to meet the Author and get a book signed. For a Meet & Greet event, Authors bring physical copies of their books, merchandise, signs, etc. and we will display them on the table. Authors can meet guests and sign books for one hour. No other chairs or tables will be set up. We have several one-hour slots available for Meet & Greets each month, and they are available on a first come, first serve basis. To reserve a slot for your Meet & Greet, use the Contact Form and select Meet & Greet Request for the Subject line.
Traditionally Published Author Events - If you are a Publisher/Publicist that would like to set up an Author Event for your Author at Spellbound, please email us via our contact form.
Private Local Author Events - If you are not chosen for an Author Event with us due to limited availability, not being part of our Consignment Program, etc., you can still host a Book Launch, Author Q&A, Book Release Party, or other Author Event by opting to reserve our store for a Private Author Event. We will provide an Author Event Package to assist you with planning, marketing, and setting up your event.
