We host our virtual author events on CrowdCast. The majority of our events are free to view unless otherwise noted and archived on our YouTube channel. Virtual events are easy to attend! Viewers do not have to worry about being on camera or having access to a microphone and have the ability to chat with the authors through live chat and ask questions through CrowdCast during the event by typing them into the Q&A field. Visit our CrowdCast page to learn more>>.

At some of our well-attended or off-site ticketed events, you can expect to stand in line for upwards of two hours and sometimes longer. If you have an issue that prevents you from standing in line for that length of time, please contact us immediately so that we can better accommodate you at the event.

In addition, free parking available at the Bucks County Parking Garage near the Courthouse on Broad Street. Free day and evening parking. Entrance on Broad Street. Additional entrances on Union and Doyle Streets. More information about parking in Doylestown can be found at

If you can't come to an event and still want an autographed copy of the book, you may purchase titles in advance either in the store, over the phone (215.230.7610), or through our website. When buying online, simply use the checkout comments field to indicate that you would like us to request the author's signature at our event before shipping it to you. Note: If you can't make it to the event, we cannot offer any personalization, only the authors signature. 

All event-related inquiries can be sent to our Director of Marketing, Events & Schools, Krisy Elisii, at The views expressed through the books or authors featured online or in-store are not those of the Doylestown or Lahaska Bookshops.
