Become a Supporter of Book Passage

We’ve been overwhelmed by the kindness we have received since we temporarily closed our doors in response to the current Covid-19 crisis, and by our community’s consistently generous concern for our Book Passage stores and staff.

Not long after the crisis began, we launched Conversations with Authors, a new, free online event series we intend to be one small way to keep our wonderful community connected. The response has been remarkable—something unimaginable without the dedication and generosity of some of our favorite friends and authors. Supporters of Book Passage help the Book Passage team now, and will help us to re-open our stores in Corte Madera and in the S.F. Ferry Building just as soon as we are able.

We appreciate everyone who continues to order books and gift cards through our website at bookpassage.com. Becoming a Book Passage supporter for the remainder of the year is another way to help keep us going and to stay connected. You’ll receive a collection of benefits as a small thank you. Most essentially, we’ll use every dollar you contribute to support our Book Passage team until we can all see each other again.

We hope you’ll take a moment now to become a Book Passage Supporter. Just complete the fields below at whatever level works best for you.

No matter what you choose, we thank you and hope that you stay safe.

Contribute $25 or more and get these benefits

You can become a Supporter of Book Passage by making a contribution of any amount. Contribute $25 or more today, and we’ll do our best to thank you all year-long by extending supporters-only invitations to:

  • Conversations with Book Passage Online Events: You will have access to a fun new extension to our Conversations with Authors series: Conversations with Book Passage. Learn about new and exciting titles from Book Passage staff, publishers’ representatives, and other industry experts. These insider conversations will debut online in just a couple of weeks.  We’ll welcome you to similar in-store gatherings just as soon as we can.
  • Supporters-only sales events: You’ll be invited to in-store and online sales exclusively for Book Passage Supporters. We hope you will join us for a special in-store “Welcome Back Sale” the day before our stores re-open to the public. It will be a great way to say hello, again.

Contribute $50 or more and benefit from additional in-store credits

If you contribute $50 or more, we will additionally send you a special gift certificate equal to half of your contribution for the purchase of books at Book Passage just as soon as our stores re-open. (This applies to larger contributions as well: Contribute $200, for example, and we’ll send you a $100 certificate you can use for future in-store purchases; contribute $300, get a certificate of $150 for your in-store purchases, and so on.) 

Contribute $200 or more and add in your own in-person concierge session

If you contribute $200 or more, we will send you the special gift certificate described above for half of your contribution. And in addition, you’ll also be invited to arrange an exclusive, in-person appointment with a knowledgeable bookseller who will talk with you about titles that may be of interest to you or to others on your gift list. These are personalized, intimate meetings, perhaps over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. If you live outside the area, we can schedule one of these “concierge” sessions online or over the telephone.

Contribute $350 or more and schedule a book talk

If you contribute $350 or more, we will send you the special gift certificate described above for half of your contribution. And in addition, we will also make our senior staff available for a scheduled book talk with larger gatherings of your friends or business associates. These festive and informative talks are a Book Passage specialty. In addition, we’ll reserve two seats for you at future Book Passage events through year-end.

And best of all: We’ll reserve two tickets and two glasses of celebratory champagne for you at a Book Passage Thank You Celebration when our stores re-open. 


Thank You

We look forward to the day when we can see you again at one of our Book Passage stores.
