AUTHOR VISITS, BOOK CLUBS, STORYTIMES AND MORE!
Barnes & Noble hosts thousands of events every year both in our stores nationwide and virtually online. These events range from author visits to local book club meetings to children's storytimes and much, much more.
Annually, our stores host thousands of authors from every genre for book readings, discussions and signings. These author visits range from national touring writers to the hottest celebrities to local authors telling their stories to their communities. Prominent authors who graced our stores recently include Brad Meltzer, Elin Hildebrand, Jimmy Fallon, Holly Black, Victoria Aveyard, David Baldacci, Nicolas Sparks, Channing Tatum Jenna and Laura Bush, Harlan Coben, Chris Colfer, Simu Liu, Neal Shusterman, Jeff Kinney, Colson Whitehead, Anthony Doerr and Anderson Cooper to name just a few.
Our national Virtual Events program showcases a variety of authors for in-conversation and panel events that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. We offer a variety of free and ticketed programming that can include signed books with your purchase/registration.
Book Club Meet-Ups:
Local Book Club meetings may be available at your local store (or if not, you can be the person to start one up locally!), so check with your local store to see what might be available. We also offer our national monthly Book Club selection that is announced at the start of each month and culminates in a book club discussion with the chosen author/title that airs virtually. You can get information on our national Book Club selections here.
Stores offer a variety of storytime programming with both local authors and high-profile touring authors/celebrities. Programming varies from store to store, so please check listings for your local Barnes & Noble. We also offer storytimes and other event programming that you can watch online on our Barnes & Noble YouTube page.
You can find the latest on all B&N events by heading to our Store Locator page on BN.com. Just type in a specific store or your geographical location and you’ll find an amazing array of both virtual events and local in-store events near you.
