  • We'll be trying something new this fall when you buy books at one of our author events. Beginning in September, the featured event book will be 20% off that day—both in the bookstore and at ticketed off-site events. You don't have to do anything special with your ticket or Frequent Buyer Card. No secret codes or handshakes. It's 20% off!

    For those who have long appreciated using our $5 tickets as coupons, don't worry, that's not going away. These coupons will no longer be eligible for books that are 20% off, but you can still bring them to the store (for up to a month after the event) for $5 off a regularly priced new book, or on a used or bargain book.
