- About Us
Below is a partial list of autographed copies currently available at Politics & Prose. Signed copies listed here are always limited and are subject to availability. As we sell out, new titles will be featured. Check back often!
Books are signed after the author event. If you are attending the event, you will be provided with an unsigned copy and may wait in the signing line for the author's signature.
Many past events also have small quantities remaining of signed stock. Please feel free to inquire about other books through the web ordering system, call the store at (202) 364-1919 or 1-800-772-0790, or email us at email@example.com to confirm stock status. First edition / first printings are sometimes, but not always, available; indicate your preferences in the online "Order Comments" field, or ask our booksellers for assistance. Also, please note that, especially when ordering online, we recommend indicating that you want a signed copy, or you may receive an unsigned book instead.
If you are not attending the event, you may pre-order signed books from our upcoming in-store events calendar at least 48 hours in advance of the author's appearance. Also, add a personalization name request below, if desired. We will hold pre-purchased books until the author signing and then ship or hold them for pick-up, as you prefer.Advance requests do receive preferential treatment by our staff.
If you are interested in obtaining a signed book from an event occurring tonight or tomorrow, please contact us to ensure that we receive your order in time.
