Are you hosting a local literary event or book launch, for which you’d like to have book sales? If your title is available through our publishers or distributors, Bookshop Santa Cruz may be able to source books and lend sales equipment for your event for your volunteers to sell the books on your behalf. For events we can support, we provide:
- Training and support
- Sales reporting to The New York Times and other bestseller lists.
For select large events, we may be able to provide direct bookselling assistance by a staff member from our store.
Please reach out to us with event details if you would like to request our participation! Notice of at least one month is advised. Sales support for book events is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, according to our staffing availability and sales potential. For smaller book events, we may not be able to provide full services, but will offer suggestions and alternatives to create the best possible experience.
We hope to hear from you soon!
** Please note: completion of this form does not guarantee participation in your book event. To give our book buyers and events team time to coordinate the best possible support, please allow 5 business days for a response to your request.
