September California YA and MG Book Events

Some of you may have noticed that I no longer do Book Events Listings for the entire country. I used to but it just honestly got to be way too much work for me. I know it was really cool for you guys but it really was a ton of work. If any of you need help on finding book events in your area, medicine I will be more than happy to help, page but for now, I will be sticking with California (mostly Southern) events!

  1. i really want to make it to the Sarah J Maas signing at the costco in Tustin, but our membership card has Josh’s name on it & not mine! My Grandma lives in Tustin though, and she has a membership, so I’m hoping she can go with me lol. Do you think I can get in if she takes me?

    1. I’m planning on going with my dad, who has the Costco card, so I’m sure you’ll be fine. She just has to be the one that buys the book, I think

  2. Is there a possibility that the Maas signing at Glendale is wrist banded? It didn’t say on the website, but I didn’t know if you knew :)

    PS: Love that it’s just SoCal now! It’s so helpful :D

    1. I’m not sure. The website doesn’t say so and I’m afraid to call because that store has been kind of fickle on the information they give out. I can try and find out for you, if you’d like.
