In order to join a signing line at the Festival, you must purchase a book from Barnes & Noble at the Festival. A receipt must be presented at the signing venues.
Our general Festival rule allows festival goers to bring one book from home to be signed, so long as at least one book is purchased in the Barnes & Noble Book Sales Tent. This guideline varies from author to author, however, and depends on a variety of factors, including the length of the signing line, the amount of time an author has to sign books, and the signing guidelines given to us by the author’s publisher.
We cannot guarantee that books brought from home will be signed. Volunteers at the signing venues will let you know whether or not additional books are permitted.
Volunteers in the signing tent will also let you know how many books you may have signed per author, whether photos are permitted, etc. For the most part, only books will be signed, no memorabilia will be permitted. Thank you for cooperating with all signing guidelines!
