Author signing events

Bookworm Central will be happy to provide books for your author signing events. Please contact us well in advance of your event so that we can help you plan your pre-order process.

Program Details

  • Let us know which author will be visiting your school, and we'll get back to you with book pricing and availability information.
  • Use whatever process is most convenient to finalize and submit a consolidated order form to Bookworm Central at least three weeks before the date by which you need the books.
  • One possible process is to distribute flyers and order forms to student families, via email or take-home folders, to announce the book signing opportunity. Collect the students' order forms and the checks made out to your school within 1-2 weeks to ensure that Bookworm Central receives your consolidated order in good time.
  • You will receive a 25% discount! Shipping charges can be waived entirely if you are able to pick up your order at our warehouse.

Our philosophy

We believe that good literature has the power to provoke thought, spark imagination, and shape character. It reinforces the concepts essential to civilized society: courage, compassion, integrity, goodness and gratitude. Books bring these gifts to life, helping children develop inner resources that can be drawn upon throughout their lives.


“With Bookworm as our Book Fair vendor, I know the selection of books will be high quality in every regard.In fact, I feel confident enough in this to allow Norwood Middle School students to count any book purchased at our Book Fair as part of their summer reading requirement.” Sue Gail Spring, Head Librarian, Norwood School
“Bookworm consistently offers our students an outstanding selection of quality literature. What other company previews each and every book in its collection?” Karen Kelly, St. Mary’s Catholic School, Alexandria
“We hear time and time again from parents and teachers that our fairs provide an excellent selection of quality books, both fiction and non-fiction. Valerie Van Note-Kreider, Bookfair Coordinator, Nysmith School
“The thing I appreciate most about Bookworm(besides their excellent staff and excellent responsiveness) is that we can almost customize our bookfair to suit the needs of our students, teachers and parents.” Jeanne Rucks, Wolftrap ES, Vienna VA
“Staff, parents, and students were all impressed and in awe of the quality and selection of books on offer. There was an excitement and buzz about the school all week. Children running to me with checks, reporting back to me that they had already finished the book they bought the day before, and often parents popping in more than once to purchase…. the POS system was a breeze. I trained different volunteers every two hours, each day, and it was very manageable to everyone.” Kristin Teeters, Librarian, British School of Washington
