Q: Do you buy & sell used books?

A: Not at the moment, but we would like to eventually carry a select inventory of curated used books and/or vintage editions. At the moment, however, we are new books only. We will update our site when we are ready to accept used books.


Q: Will you host my event? 

A: North Figueroa Bookshop hosts literary and community events. We prefer to book events two to three months in advance. To submit a pitch, please email info@northfigbookshop.com with a brief event description, anticipated attendance, and your desired date. We'll respond accordingly.


Q: I'm an author. Will you stock my book? 

A: We have limited shelf space, so new title submissions must be considered before we can add them to our shelves. To submit a stock request, please email us at info@northfigbookshop.com


Q: I couldn't find the book I wanted. Can you order it for me? 

A: We offer special orders for pickup. Just ask the person at the register to place an order for you. Special orders usually arrive in three to ten business days. You can also shop from home on our Bookshop.org storefront. If you'd like to suggest a title for us to stock on our shelves, please email us at info@northfigbookshop.com


Q: Are you available to sell books at offsite events?

A: Yes! For offsite queries, please email info@northfigbookshop.com at least one month before your event date with the following information:

Date and time, host name, location, expected attendance, and title(s) requested. 


Q: I'm an independent publisher. How can I be involved with North Fig Bookshop? 

A: We'd love to work with you! Please email us at info@northfigbookshop.com to set up a time to talk. 


Q: Are you hiring? 

A: Not at this time. Feel free to send us a resume at info@northfigbookshop.com and we will keep it on file for when we’re ready to start the process.
