In-Store Events Returning this Fall!

Magers & Quinn is pleased to announce that we will begin offering in-store and in-person literary events again, starting August 31, 2021. We are very excited to bring authors and readers back together in our space, and we know you are too! 

Beginning with a multi-author happy hour and book signing on Tuesday, August 31, M&Q’s fall events calendar will feature several local and national authors reading at our Uptown bookstore.

Magers & Quinn will continue to offer occasional virtual events through social media streaming and other platforms. All current information about individual event formats, locations, registration or ticket requirements, and more can be found online at

As we all navigate the transition back to congregating in person, we ask that you use honesty, care, and understanding in interacting with fellow event-goers, staff, and authors. Please note that Magers & Quinn will always comply with current city and state regulations, and reserves the right to change the below policies at any time. These are guidelines only, and if you have questions about the most up to date information, you can always call us at 612-822-4611.

For information about how our in-person events will work over the coming months, please read on:

Q: Are masks required? 

A: No, masks are not required in our building. But for the health and safety of others, we strongly encourage you to wear a mask if not vaccinated for COVID-19. 

Magers & Quinn does not currently require cloth masks or face coverings be worn by staff or visitors. However, in accordance with CDC recommendation, Magers & Quinn strongly encourages individuals who have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to continue to wear a mask in public. Masks will be made available for event-goers who wish to use one. 

Q: Are in store events free?

A: Yes, Magers & Quinn events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. 

Q: Do I need to RSVP?

A: Yes, please. Each in-store event will now include a registration link in the event description on our website,

As we take this step back to in-person events, we will be limiting event capacity to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for all attendees and authors. By requiring pre-registration, we can easily communicate event updates and policies with those who plan to attend, can contact attendees after the event with follow-up information, and can even make the decision to move to a larger venue if demand warrants this step. 

We strongly suggest registering via the Eventbrite links that will be provided on our website, but if you are unable to sign up online, please call or visit the bookstore and register with a bookseller. 

We may or may not be able to accommodate unregistered walk-ins, and seating priority will always be given to registered customers. We appreciate your understanding of this new process!
