The Bookstore of Glen Ellyn

Local Author Policy


The Glen Ellyn Bookstore is proud to support locally published authors.  
Now that our remodel is complete, we are implementing a new Local Author Policy.  To be considered for our Local Author shelf, please make sure your book follows these guidelines:

  • Please supply one copy of your book and an application form for consideration.  Books may be dropped off at the store or mailed.  Please understand, that even if we are not engaged with a customer, we are busy working, and may not be able to spend time talking about your work at that time.
  • If your book is approved, we will randomly select 5-10 books per month to display on our local author shelf.  The books will remain on display for 60 days. 
  • We are contacted by local authors every week and we cannot guarantee if, or when your book will be selected. 
  • You must reside in Dupage County to be considered for our Local Author Shelf.

For more information regarding book specifications and to apply, please complete this form and bring it with one copy of your book for us to consider.
