Request an Event
Congratulations on the publication of your book and thank you for thinking of us! Please read the following information carefully before filling out the form:
Please only send requests for events at least two to three months in advance of your book’s publication date. Note that we prioritize events for newly published books, and rarely schedule an event for more than a few weeks after the release date. This helps create a more successful event in celebration of the publication, ensures adequate time for promotion and staff scheduling, and ensures attendees purchase the book at QRB rather than elsewhere in advance.
Due to the expense of events and high volume of requests, we unfortunately have to turn down most proposals. Please consider submitting your book for consignment on our shelves as an alternative. Information about how to do that can be found here.
A successful event does begin with the author attracting local acquaintances - we rely heavily on your community. We require authors to promote the event themselves on Instagram, Facebook, etc.
If you would like to request an in-store reading, please fill out the following form. A physical, non-returnable review copy should be mailed or dropped off at the store at the attention of our Events Coordinator, Kristen.
Due to the high volume of requests that we receive, we may not be able to respond to all proposals. We thank you for your patience.
