Author Event How To

We love hosting author events.

If you are a publicist or editor from a major publishing house or a high-quality small press, or an author that is published by a major publishing house or high-quality small press, and wish to inquire about scheduling an author event at our store, please email bookpeople@moscow.com. Please DO NOT CALL.

If the author is not widely known, please explain clearly in your email why you believe there would be local interest and a local market for the author's book.

The store's seating capacity is about 50 people, plus more room for standing. A podium, a microphone, and a small amplifier are available, as well as a projector and a screen. These must be arranged for in advance.

In general, there is a rhythm to author events scheduling. Spring and fall are prime event seasons. Spring plans are made in January, fall plans are made during the summer. If you email outside of those times your email will probably be filed away for future consideration. Author events do not generally take place during July and August, or November and December.

If you live locally and wish to propose an author event, please email with basic info about the author and your event request.

If you are a self-published author who does not have a connection to the Palouse, please do not contact BookPeople of Moscow in regard to an author event.

If you are a self-published author and are interested in having us stock your book please see "Author's Corner" on the Info menu.

Thank you!
