SOLD OUT: Elin Hilderbrand | The Five-Star Weekend

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT. You can join the waitlist on the Eventbrite page. If someone cancels their tickets, we will work our way down the list and you will receive an email notification that tickets are available. There will be no manual list.


We are very excited to welcome Elin Hilderbrand to the shop to sign copies of her new book, The Five-Star Weekend. This is a ticketed event for a SIGNING LINE (Elin will not be speaking) and includes the book - your ticket will indicate the time slot for your place in the signing line. You will not be admitted before the time on your ticket. If you arrive after your entry time, we will fit you into the line. 

Elin will personalize books and will take photos during the signing. If you attend with a group there will be a group photo, rather than individual ones. Attendees may bring 2 books from home for Elin to sign as time permits.

Elin asks that everyone wear hydrangea blue – fans who do wear the color have a chance to appear on her Instagram page. 

Tickets must be purchased from Eventbrite here. 

NOTE: If you order a book through our website instead of purchasing a ticket on Eventbrite, we will assume you are NOT attending the event.
