If you’re a local Ohio author, join us October 17th – 20th, 2018 during the Pumpkin Show for a series of book signings hosted by Keystone Books and Gifts.
The Circleville Pumpkin Show is THE Greatest Free Show on Earth and it draws in thousands upon thousands of people from all over. If you’re looking to get yourself in front of a decent sized crowd, the Pumpkin Show would be a great event to consider!
Here’s a look at our times available for the 2018 Book Signing at the Pumpkin Show:
Wednesday, October 17th –
11am – STILL OPEN
5pm – STILL OPEN
Thursday, October 18th –
Friday, October 19th –
11am – STILL OPEN
1pm – STILL OPEN
Saturday, October 20th –
3pm – STILL OPEN
Rules and Suggestions for this event:
Book sales will be through Keystone Books & Gifts (138 W. Main St.). If you are a new author, be sure to email us a list of your book titles and prices. You can contact us about information in regards to consignment by calling 740-474-7526 or by emailing [email protected].
The times listed above are on a first come, first serve basis. If you
wish to be a part of this event, you must send us an email confirmation
with the date and time you wish to have your signing at. We will let you
know if this time is available.
All requests to be a part of this event MUST be done via email or via
Facebook messenger so that it is time stamped. Time is not officially
assigned until you receive an email or Facebook message back stating
that you are confirmed. You are welcome to call and ask questions but
we will not agree to any times without a time stamped email.
There will be a fee for being a part of this event. If you wish to
attend on Wednesday or Thursday, the cost to participate is $15 and if
you wish to attend on Friday or Saturday, the cost is $30. Payments can
be made by stopping into the store to pay with a check or card, or by
calling us on the phone and giving us a credit card number. Times are
not confirmed and your spot is not guaranteed until payment is made.
This fee is not refundable.
In the event that you are coming to this signing, we recommend only
bringing the very basics for this signing, as you will be set up in our
tent on Main St and space will be VERY limited. We recommend only
bringing your books. We will provided a table, a chair and a table cloth.
Since the Pumpkin Show is a popular event, we recommend arriving early
and finding a parking spot as close to the show as possible. The later
in the day you wait, the harder it will be to find a spot. You will also
want to leave any books you are bringing to the signing in your car, as
we will not have space to store your books in the back of store with the
volume of people we are expected to have roaming through our store. We
recommend showing up one at least a minimum of (1) hour before your
scheduled time to set up for your signing, giving you time to maneuver
the crowd. Please note that the later in the week we get with Pumpkin
Show (weather permitting), the bigger the crowd gets. Come Friday and
Saturday, you will definitely want to arrive early in the morning as
possible and stay within the show so you can make it to your signing.
In the event that it rains at the time of your signing, you will be
given the option to set up inside our store. However, any other time you
will be sat up in the tent out on the street, as you will be seen more
and have more of an opportunity to interact with customers. It is
required, however, that you stay within the parameter of the tent. Going
beyond the tent will lead to security or volunteers talking to you.
ALL sales will be done through Keystone Books and a check will be cut
and mailed to you after the Pumpkin Show is over.
If you plan to be a part of this event, be sure to reply to this email
with the date and time you want to have your signing at. You must send
us an email confirmation in order for us to add you to our event and you
must make your payment.
If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call
at 740-474-7526, or send us an email.
