Third Place Books has resumed its popular author events which are a stop on the national tour for authors publishing new books. 

Some events are in person, some are virtual. Some are ticketed where you purchase a copy of the book ahead of time. 

If it is not offered, you can always purchase or reserve a copy of the book by calling the store at 206-366-3333.

The store is located on the upper level of Town Center in Lake Forest Park at the intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way NE. 

At the events the author gives a short presentation which may include a reading, then takes questions from the attendees.

Both virtual and in-person events require registration in advance. Unless ticketed, events are free and open to the public. See for details.
