On a related note –
If your author will be attending and signing at your table during a fixed time, or if you have any special activities that will only occur at a specific time, please let me know so they can be added to the app. App content is due to me at [log in to unmask] by July 23.
Please include a title of no more than a few words, a description, the duration (8:30 am – 9:30 am) and the location.
Center for the Book
Authors sign the books the day before the festival. If anyone else knows that the author of their Great Read will be coming, please let me know. I will let the bookseller know. I don’t need this info immediately but by mid-July.
Thanks, Guy. Our Nebraska author will also be at our table—she will be signing books and bookmarks. When do the authors pre-sign the books that will be sold in the Festival Bookstore—can you give us details?

Hi—We sell all 52 Great Reads during the festival. The author is free to be at the Arizona table as well in the Parade of the States. She would certainly be able to sign books there but you can’t sell books there. You would have to direct folks to the book sales area to purchase the book. Also, many authors pre-sign books that are then sold in the book sales area. The would also be an option.
Our 2018 Great Read author would very much like to participate in the National Book Festival. It sounds as though her publisher would pay for her to attend.
What are the rules and regulations regarding Great Read authors at the NBF? Can she sign her books or participate in some other way?
Thanks for your help!
Please note new address.
