I already have a copy of a book I'd like to have signed. Can I bring it with me?
Sure! You are more than welcome to bring books you already own.
Is there a place to hang out with the authors before or after the event?
At this time, the only meet & greet opportunity with authors is at the actual signing event, from 11AM-5PM. Individual authors may be organizing separate events before or after the Halifax Author Event, but that is up to each of them. If you are interested in something like that, please contact the author directly, or watch our Facebook event page for other informal events that may come from the event.
I'm an author interested in participating in the event. Are you accepting more authors?
We are accepting author registration until March 5/14. Email for details.
I'm an author who isn't participating in the event, but would like to leave swag for fans. Do you have a place I'd be able to leave it?
No. Unfortunately, we won't have any room to add a table for author swag.
Are there any other sites to see in Halifax while I'm attending the event?
The Halifax Public Gardens are just across the street from the Lord Nelson Hotel. We are also walking distance to the Waterfront, Spring Garden shopping, and Citadel Historic site. More information on tourism in Halifax can be found here, at destinationhalifax.com
