Tasting Notes Dinner
Who says flights are just for drinks? At the Tasting Notes Dinner, 4-6 keynote authors are given 10 minutes each to discuss their forthcoming book in a format reminiscent of a tasting flight.
This is a ticketed meal event. Socializing with booksellers is one of the highlights of the authors' experience. Your author placement fee includes a table of 10 reserved seats.
Flow of the event
Starting at 6:30 pm, the event emcee will address the crowd. The first two courses will be served and eaten for a half hour. Starting at 7:00 pm, a bookseller will introduce each author briefly, keep the program running on time, and provide a wrap-up signal for each author. Authors are allotted a maximum of 10 minutes to speak. After the authors are done, we’ll break into a signing for book personalization. The emcee will announce that the signing is beginning, which means authors should take their seats at the signing tables, where their books will be waiting.
We’ll have a raised podium and a microphone at the front of the room for speakers’ use.
Before the Event
Authors pre-sign their books before the event; the time after dinner is for further personalization. The book room (official room name: Exhibit Hall; see on the right) will be staffed the following hours for pre-signing, so please direct your author accordingly.
