Sister Spit – 8/14/22 (details soon!)
Events at Verbatim Books
Verbatim Books has hosted hundreds of events featuring local authors/poets, traveling authors, artists, musicians, performers, and much more. We twice produced the popular North Park Book Fair and are looking forward to creating more fun events for the public soon!
Things to know before contacting us about hosting your event:
As a primarily used bookstore, we do not host traveling authors that we do not already sell in the store. Please do not contact us with sales pitches or attempts to get us to purchase new titles, we will not be able to respond to these messages.
We never buy books via Ingram or Amazon.
Since we don’t want to “play favorites,” we rarely host events for individual authors. If you would like to put together a lineup of authors/poets/etc. (as opposed to just one person) we will be much more likely to want to host that event!
We don’t really do the traditional “book signings” and prefer to do events that are engaging and experiential. We are looking for events that bring our patrons readings, discussions, multiple perspectives, etc.
Our events are always free to the public, we do not host paid events unless the space is being rented from us (see below for information on how to rent our space).
Unfortunately, we can not allow any professional photo shoots during business hours.
Professional photo shoots can be arranged outside of our business hours. Contact us with the date/time of day that you would like to shoot, what the shoot is for, how many people will be present. Please be as specific as possible regarding the date/time, and remember to check our hours.
Rates and availability will vary depending on the type of photo shoot.
