Consignment Policy


Our first priority is to give consignment space to faculty first, and then staff. Staff members are limited to one title, eight copies, and we prefer you consign Thursday of conference. To consign at a different time, please ask in advance.  Faculty have no consignment limitations as to number of titles or number of copies. But we would like to know which titles you will bring  prior to the conference for planning reasons.


We will have limited space for books by registered attendees. So please sign up in advance and all names will be placed on a wait list in chronological order. We’ll try to contact you in advance but sometimes, we may not know until the actual conference starts if there will be space. It’s always good to bring the books with you to take advantage of unexpected space.  There’s a limit of one title, eight copies. However, you’re welcome to  replenish the stock if they sell out. To get on the wait list, email

CONSIGNMENT FEE: We will sell your book or book-related item (with bookstore coordinator approval) in our bookstore for a 15% consignment fee of the retail or owner-supplied price. We provide a contract to be signed by the consignee, specifying all financial details.

All items must be checked-in via our contract. All unsold items must be checked-out by a specific time on Sunday (time set by coordinator and in contract).

We pay 85 % of the retail or owner-supplied price of sold items by check after the event. You, the author, retains the ownership of unsold books/items.

THE SMALL PRINT:  Any unsold items not picked up by the deadline will be considered abandoned property. Anybody who picks up their books, but does not checkout with the bookstore staff, forfeits all payments. We must physically count the unsold books in order to complete the contract.

The bookstore coordinator or her/his on-site representative (bookstore staff) reserves the right to refuse or limit the number of consigned items due to content, appropriateness or space limitations.
