National Press Club

These events are organized by the NPC Book & Author Committee and you can pitch your author to them. These events are designed to sell books and are fundraisers for the National Press Club Journalism Institute. The Club will provide books for sale and signature by the author. There are two events per month. They can take place in any room in the Club and the programs are about one hour long and take place from 6:30-8:00 p.m. There is generally a modest admission charge to members and the general public to reserve a seat. The events are open to working press for coverage. This is the main program for authors who have current books and are on tour.
