Barnes & Noble is our AWESOME on-site partner bookseller. There will be a bookstore set up at COA West, and it will be open at registration, at lunch and then again during the Author Signing (2:00 - 3:00 pm). We certainly encourage you to purchase any books you'd like prior to the event, but know that if you don't, or (more likely) find you have to have more after working with and meeting these amazing authors, Barnes & Noble will have a full catalog of every one of our authors. Cash and credit card will be accepted. If you have a Barnes & Noble membership, you must present your membership card at checkout in order to get your discount. Who doesn't love book shopping?!
Students will be able to save time the day of the event if they pre-order their books from Barnes & Noble. A list will be provided in the weeks before May 9th, and students can choose the titles they'd like to ensure are at the event when they get there. Payment will need to be made to the schools who will then pay B&N prior to the order being filled. Teachers/librarians will pick up their box of pre-ordered books at registration and distribute them to their students. Watch here for more details on the pre-sale options as we get closer to the event.
