Event Guidelines

This event is free and open to the public. To join the signing line and have books signed by the author at this event, you must purchase a copy of The Magician's Hat from Parnassus Books, either in-store, over the phone, or online (scroll down). Your purchase will include a signing line ticket which will admit you to the line at the event. One item of memorabilia per family may be signed. 

The best way to support an author featured at a Parnassus event, as well as to support Parnassus for hosting the author and the event, is to purchase the author's new book from Parnassus. Your purchase also demonstrates to publishers that they should continue sending authors to Parnassus and to Nashville. 

Video recording, audio recording, and/or live-streaming during author appearances and signings is not possible without prior written permission from the publisher and Parnassus Books.

Can't make it to the event, but still want to purchase an autographed or personalized book? Place your order below, enter "signed copy" plus any personalization details in the comments section of your order, and we'll have the author sign your books and ship them to you after the event!

More about The Magician's Hat

"Malcolm Mitchell is changing the world through the power of reading." -- Dav Pilkey, bestselling creator of the Dog Man and Captain Underpants series

"The Magician's Hat will cast its spell on you!" -- Jeff Kinney, bestselling author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series

Super Bowl champion and literacy crusader Malcolm Mitchell presents the story of a magician who reveals an awe-inspiring treasure from his bag of tricks -- books that make every kid's dream come true!

This is not your typical afternoon at the library -- a magician invites kids to reach into his hat to pull out whatever they find when they dig down deep. Soon -- poof! -- each child comes away with something better than they could've imagined -- a book that helps them become whatever they want to be, and makes their dreams come true through pages and words, and the adventures that follow. But each child can't help but wonder, What's really making the magic happen?
