PROPOSING AN EVENT TO KEPLER’S
Thank you for your interest in our store and for thinking of
us as a good place for the author event you have in mind. Here are a few
guidelines to use to propose an event to us:
If you are unfamiliar with our store and with the sort of
events that we do, please take some time to review current event listings on
our website. Kepler’s is a great match for many writers – and not so wonderful
a match for many others. We want to know why you think you’d make a great match
- provide the full title, the author’s name, ISBN,
price, publication date, and publisher. Please indicate whether the publisher
provides coop allowances for author events.
- provide a brief
description of the book.
- provide a short
bio of the author(s), and any information relevant to local connections.
- provide any relevant web links.
- let us know if you are thinking of a reading, a panel
discussion, a demo, or any other format, and let us know if the program is
meant to include any audio or video aspects.
- send your proposal to Events@keplers.com
We are unable to consider event proposals on the phone.
We will thoroughly review your proposal, often discussing it
with store staff, and we will respond to you no matter what our decision may
Kepler’s Books tends to favor literary fiction, science,
history, serious narrative non-fiction, technology, thought-provoking
contemporary issues including politics and current affairs, and cultural and
ethnic studies. We also host many authors who write for children and young adults.
We generally book three to five months in advance.
