Meet The Author of a California Bar Exam Preparation Guide, Vincent Van Gogh Biography, Team Building Tips Collection, or Rhinecliff NY Real Estate Adventure
Is there a book in your collection that has changed your life? Perhaps you read a self-help book called "Is My Boyfriend Cheating?" that made you realize you needed to be more independent. Maybe a biography you read as a child made you want to be a great painter or a famous architect. Perhaps reading a certain series of wizard books helped get you through your parents' divorce. Whatever the book is, you should let the author know how it has affected you. The best way to do that is by attending a meet the author session.
Meet the author sessions are arranged by the author's publishers for the purposes of promoting their books. Usually when the book first comes out, the publisher will arrange what's called a book tour, which consists of meet the author appearances, book signings, panels, conferences, and lectures for areas that will be stocked by the book's first printing. Toronto is almost always included on the list, so you're in luck.
Meet the author sessions usually come in the form of a book signing or book reading. These events take place at libraries, book stores, or sometimes even community centers and schools if the book is a biography of Vincent Van Gogh aimed at children. For these sessions, readers and fans can come, listen to the author read a sample of his or her book, get a book signed by the author, and chat with him or her for a few minutes. Authors are usually happy to meet anyone who likes their books and will be very friendly, so don't be shy about approaching them.

The best part about meet the author sessions is that unlike autograph sessions with celebrities, you won't need to pay anything to get the author's autograph. The author is being paid for his or her time by the bookstore (which hopes you will buy a copy of the book while you're there) or the library or school (as part of an educational program). So don't worry - if you already have a copy you won't have to put off buying new team building drums to get a signature on your book.
Authors are generally pretty laid back and meet the author sessions are usually pretty informal, but there are a few no-nos when it comes to meeting an author. It's encouraged to ask for a signature on your book, either for you or a friend, but don't ask them to sign a book that's not theirs or anything else. It's also considered bad form to ask them to write a story about you selling real estate in Rhinecliff, NY or to attend an author session just to criticize the book or the author.
