Bethany Beach Books Event Terms

  • We host our author events between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend each year
  • Events are typically scheduled for 6:30pm Sunday-Friday. Alternate timing can be prearranged on an event-by-event basis but this is subject to availability and approval of our event coordinator
  • Our events are casual meet-and-greet events as we find this suits our customer base best and has proven to be most successful
  • Hosted authors are required to advertise their event with Bethany Beach Books on their website, blog, social media outlets, etc.
  • Promotion of purchasing on Amazon or other competitive big-box retailers are not tolerated during the event at Bethany Beach Books
  • Independent authors who do not already have an active Independent Author contact with BBB may fill out the program application here if their book is not available through Ingram, Baker & Taylor or another distributor or publisher
  • Please be aware that our town is very weather-dependent during the summer months and poor weather is (sadly) out of our control. Weather can effect foot traffic throughout the town.
