Event Requests

Please note: our online event calendar is not a reflection of the store's scheduling availability.

For authors and presses inquiring about an in-person event at Literati:

Our events are primarily set up through our existing relationships with major publishers, independent presses, and their imprints. Literati refrains from hosting events for self-published titles, non-trade academic titles, and all titles associated with Amazon publishing and its imprints. Event titles must be available to Literati through our existing distribution relationships and on standard terms, and meet our Inventory Consideration guidelines.

Inquiries and requests should be made at least two months in advance. We will consider proposed event dates at most two months out from the date of publication. Please include title's ISBN #, distribution info, proposed dates, and a brief explanation of why you think the event would be a good fit for our store.

We appreciate your understanding regarding our very limited scheduling availability. We receive far more requests for in-store and virtual events than we are able to accommodate or respond to in a timely fashion, and we apologize in advance if you do not hear back from us.

Inquiries can be sent to David@LiteratiBookstore.com.

For university departments, private organizations, businesses, libraries, et al., interested in having Literati Bookstore as a promotional partner and bookseller for a pre-arranged event or virtual event: 

Literati is happy to assist you with book sales for an in-person or virtual author event you have pre-arranged, subject to staff availability. Inquiries can be sent to David@LiteratiBookstore.com. Inquiries and requests should be made at least two months from the proposed event date. Note that due to high demand for our services and other considerations, we are not be able to accommodate all requests. We appreciate your understanding regarding the time it may take to respond to these inquiries. For events with academic titles: these titles must be priced for retail and must be returnable.

We are unable to assist outside organizations in securing specific or desired authors, nor are we able to provide financial assistance in securing authors for your event or for authors you have already booked to appear. We encourage organizations to inquire and work primarily with their desired author’s speaker's bureau or other representatives to determine a desired author's interest, availability, and appearance fees.
