|Q: I plan to do a “story time” at a children’s hospital and am excited about doing this from the standpoint of helping the children and interacting with them. I plan to give each child an autographed poster of our book as well as bookmarks, etc. I would also like to sell some autographed copies of books. What would be the “proper” way to handle this so as not to appear too “commercial”?
I’d ask the coordinator at the hospital what their policy is about selling books or products and what they feel would be appropriate if you do arrange a book sale. They may want you to handle sales discreetly (taking advance orders, for example), in case some children can’t afford to purchase the book. 9-10:02
