Local, Independent, and Small Press Authors

If you’re just passing through, or visiting the many exciting attractions of our region, we hope you’ll stop by to say hello! We love meeting writers and illustrators and would love to have you sign any stock we have on hand–just ask a bookseller and we’ll get you set up.  

Country Bookshelf is a highly curated indie bookstore. While we feel we have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to space, we still can’t carry every title in print. If you are interested in seeing your book on our shelves please review our consignment policies and application. 

Country Bookshelf hosts a variety of book and literacy related events, from author readings and signings to workshops and book clubs. We receive many requests and are simply unable to accommodate everyone. We review all event requests, but are very selective about which events we choose to host. Events are scheduled 2-3 months in advance. We usually cannot accommodate last minute requests. 

Please review our Event Guidelines and submit an application.

Please note: for both Consignment and Event applications, responses can take several weeks due to the volume of requests.
