Authors and publishers, Old Capitol Books would LOVE to host your event! We supply a free venue to support local authors, illustrators, and publishers. We have a table and seating area with up to 12 chairs (with an additional 10 stools), which makes for a great intimate space for your event, or we have a cool little back alley which is great for poetry readings and live music.
Old Capitol Books provides: a nice, free, and well-lit space for your event; processing of all sales; free advertisement on our website, our social media, and our newsletter; and a press release sent to all local print publications (Monterey County Weekly, Monterey Herald, etc.).
Old Capitol Books offers our venue for no charge during store opening hours. If you’d like to have your event after hours, there will be a charge to cover staff. Any sales as a result of your book signing must go through the bookstore, which will take 40% of sales. Please note that Old Capitol Books DOES NOT purchase copies of your book in advance of the event. Authors are responsible for bringing copies of their book on the day of the book signing.
