Author events are very popular at Copperfish Books! We ask that you RSVP so that we can manage the space, order enough books, and make sure your overall experience is positive and enjoyable. Most of our events are free and open to the public; some may require tickets and a book purchase. Look for RSVP details on each of the individual event listings.
We have two types of event reservations:
- A General Reservation is for general seating and/or standing room and does not require a book purchase. This option guarantees your admittance to the event, but it does not guarantee a seat. We will do our best to give you a seat, but for larger events, you may have to stand.
- A Priority Reservation guarantees you a seat and a priority spot in the signing line. This option will be offered for select in-store events. To get your Priority Reservation, purchase the author's book in our store, on our website, or call us. If you purchase from our website, please indicate that you wish to make a Priority Reservation.
PLEASE NOTE: Because some of you may plan to come with your spouse, partner or another member of your household, we understand you might not be interested in buying two books. You may purchase a second Priority Reservation for $10.
Priority Reservations will be made available where we expect higher-than-usual attendance. We hope you will like this option! One benefit is that you know you will be guaranteed a seat. And it’s a nice reward for those who support our events by purchasing the author’s book. Author events are expensive for the publisher, authors, and for the bookstore. We need to sell enough books so that terrific authors will keep coming, and you will be able to enjoy meeting them!
