Event Services

Event services are currently on hold due to COVID-19.

Holding an event featuring an author?

Bookstore1Sarasota would like to help you make your event successful by providing a discount you can use to your advantage and by helping you promote your event online.

 

Here’s how it works.

 

DISCOUNT

 

Order the author’s book(s) through Bookstore1 at least 30 days prior to your event.

 

We’ll give you a 20% discount when you order and prepay for event books (minimum order 20 books). You may choose to use these books and the discount in any number of ways:

 

§ Include a book with the price of each event ticket

 

§ Give a book to each of your major donors or clients

 

§ Have your volunteers sell the books at face value plus sales tax (if applicable for your organization) thus gaining a profit on each sale

 

PROMOTION

 

§ We’ll promote your event to our eBlast subscribers so potential attendees have a link (or a phone number if you choose) to your site that allows them to make a reservation.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

ABOUT ORDERING, FREIGHT AND DELIVERY

 

* Orders, freight and delivery fee (if applicable) must be pre-paid at time the order is placed.

* Bookstore1 will receive the books and store them for you until the day of your event.

* We’ll deliver the books to your event site that is within 15 miles of Bookstore1Sarasota for a flat fee of $50.

 

Need to send some books back to the publisher? We can handle that for you. Simply bring your unsold, undamaged books back to Bookstore1. For a small service fee (25 cents per book) plus shipping charges, we’ll take care of returns.

 

Call 941-365-7900 to order books for your next event.
