Event FAQs

How do I attend?

Most in-store events are free and open to the public. To join the signing line, please purchase a copy of the author’s new book from That Book Store. Luncheons and other ticketed events in-store require pre-registration and ticket purchase.

Off-site events require a ticket, which usually include the new book. The cost is dependent on the cost of the book.

Can I get my book from home signed?

A purchase from That Book Store is required to join the signing line; additional books from home of older titles can be signed at the discretion of the author.

Can I get a photo with the author?

Those guidelines are determined by the author and the publisher, so check each event for specifics.

Where should I park?

Our parking lot is located behind our store. Overflow parking for on-site events is available across the street at 449 Silas Deane Hwy. Please do not park at Beaver Brook Animal Hospital.
