Event Guidelines

Hicklebee's is proud to host the newest and best authors and illustrators in the industry. All events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise stated.

To get a book signed, we ask that the book be purchased from Hicklebee's. By purchasing a book from us, you are not only supporting a local, independent business, but you are also showing publishers that they should continue sending authors to Hicklebee's.

For events where we expect large crowds, we may give out numbers to hold your place in the signing line. Books purchased at Hicklebee's have priority at all signings. Signing line numbers allow you to sit, relax and browse without having to worry about losing your place in line. Numbers will be given out one hour before the event begins.

Ocassionally Hicklebee's will sell tickets for special events. This allows us to keep track of the number of seats we'll need and cover extra costs we incur with large or special events. If tickets are required for an event, we will include information in that event's specific page found on our website calendar of events.

If you cannot attend a particular event, but would still like to have a book signed, please call our store (408 292-8880) or order at www.hicklebees.com (Be sure to add the name of the person to whom the book is to be signed in the order comments). You can purchase a book over the phone or online, and we will get the book signed and set aside specifically for you. This service is free of charge and available for most of our events.

Any other event questions can be answered by calling our store, at (408) 292-8880.
