For Authors

The Penguin Bookshop is committed to bringing a diverse array of authors to our community.  Please contact us if you are interested in setting up a book-signing event.  Self-published/independently published authors are welcome to contact us via email about doing events.  A $100 deposit is required to secure your event date. The Penguin Bookshop Event Package includes a 1.5 hour event, staffing, social media and in-store promotion, and inclusion in our newsletter. The price is the $100 deposit or 40% of gross sales of your book during the event, whichever is greater.  Emailing us your information is the most productive way to contact us -- walking into the store with your book in hand is not!  You may email Susan (shansoconnor@penguinbookshop.com) or Mary (mferris@penguinbookshop.com) with your information and requested dates.  

Childrens authors or those who sponsor child-centered activities (music, etc.) may contact us about hosting Saturday storytimes.  

We hope to hear from you soon!
