2023 Book Signing Schedule


Meet your favorite authors at our Book Signing Station, conveniently located just outside all three seminar rooms in the Conference Center.

Seattle’s University Book Store, one of the Northwest’s foremost independent booksellers, has teamed with the show to operate our popular Book Signing Station. Simply head to the Conference Center to enjoy your favorite speakers, and the author Book Signing Station and their bookstore is right nearby. You can also shop for books from many past speakers and other current popular gardening titles.

After you purchase books at the Book Signing Station, why not have them autographed? Authors head to the Book Signing Station after their seminars to greet audience members, sign books and answer questions. Autographed books make great gifts for your garden-loving friends.

Many thanks to University Book Store - Seattle's original bookstore - for operating the festival's Book Signing Station and bookstore. Support the independent bookstore that supports the festival!
