"Common Sense" for Authors and Book Clubs

Though bringing authors and book clubs together requires very obvious "etiquette," here are a few reminders for both.

For Book Clubs:

--Give authors plenty of lead time

--Let authors know your policy on selling books at meetings

--Have a single contact person from your book club

--Let the author know if you'd like her/him to do a reading

--Give clear directions to the meeting place

For Authors:

--Honor commitments; if there are changes, give book clubs enough time to make them

--Ask if you can sell books

--Ask if you can publicize the event to people outside the book club

--Have a few formal comments prepared, even if you don't use them
