Frequently Asked Questions About Our Event Program

Do I need to RSVP for all events? 

Our events are free and open to the public unless listed otherwise, and we generally do not require RSVPs for in-store events. If an event is ticketed or requires an RSVP, we will note that in all our marketing materials. Tickets are available for purchase both online or in our stores. We always encourage you to reserve books in advance of an event, however, just to ensure that we don't sell out. You can do this by purchasing the book through our website or by calling the store and asking us to hold a book. 

What if I can't attend an event? Can I still purchase an autographed copy?

If you cannot attend an event but would like to receive an autographed or personalized copy, we would be happy to accommodate you if we can. You can either purchase the book through our website and note in the comments that you'd like a book to be personalized or autographed at the event (please also include the event date and who you would like the book personalized to), or you can call our store and reserve a copy. We will also have a limited number of autographed copies available after each event. 

How do I find out if an event is canceled?

Occasionally, events are canceled for reasons that are beyond our control. As soon as we have word that an event has been canceled, we will do everything in our power to notify people on our event calendar, on both the Savoy and Bank Square Books Facebook pages, and via our weekly event emails. Please check those channels before attending an event, or call our stores, to confirm that nothing has changed.

I purchased an event ticket but cannot attend. Can I get a refund?

Event tickets will be refunded on a case-by-case basis depending on the event and the venue. Please email to request a refund.

I'm an author and would like to be considered for an event at your store. What do I do?

We love supporting local authors! Please email our event manager Anastasia Soroko at to request more information about our event program. Please include information about your book, including ISBN and publisher information, plus a little bit about yourself. We tend to schedule our events at least three months in advance, so please reach out well before the publication of your book, if possible. If you are a self-published author, please first see information about our consignment program here.
