These are taken directly from the store websites. For stores not listed, I'd like to think that means you're clear, but I'd suggest calling and checking before bringing a bagful of books from home. And if you are allowed to bring a bagful, please do try to buy some new books from the store. We need to make this worthwhile for them or they won't want us back!
For general event FAQ, check out my blog here.
Customers can get the books they brought from home signed as long as they buy one event related book for every book they bring from home. For example, if you bring 2 books from home, you need to buy 2 books (by one or two of the lovely 'Chick' authors visiting that day).
Blue Willow, Houston
You may bring books from home, but in order to get in the signing line, you must purchase at least one of the author’s books from Blue Willow Bookshop.
Lemuria Books, Jackson
For every book bought from Lemuria that you get signed, you may get TWO books from home signed.
This is actually a "good news" change. Last week, we'd been advised that the store was taking very limited registration for this and was fully booked. However, after some discussion, we decided we'd rather hold it outside on the Vroman's Paseo, where attendance is NOT limited.
(This one we did know about and have had posted on the site for months) To receive an event ticket to this exciting program, purchase at least one of the authors’ books (OR pay $5).
Okay, so, um, now we can get excited? Yay, tour! It's finally here. Over a year of planning coming to fruition with the first big event in Austin tomorrow!
Tomorrow...? Oh, crap, I need to go pack...
