What is the name of the event space and how do we get to it?
The event will be held in the Oregon Ballroom Salon E at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront.

What time should we get there?
We like to suggest that the line begins forming 1 hour prior to the event start time. Please arrive around approx. 12:00 AM to begin forming the line.

Will tickets be available at the door?
Yes, tickets will be available at the door for $15.00/each. Cash will be the only accepted form of payment for admission.

Will the amount of books we bring be limited?
No limit! Bring what you can roll or carry.

Are there any other events planned such as an after party?
Once the signing has ended at 5:00 PM, there will not be an official after party or other type of organized event.

Are food/beverages allowed in the room?
No food/beverages (water is totally fine) will be allowed within the signing room, so make sure your tummy is happy before entering.

Will there be an on-site bookseller? If so, what books will they have for sale?
There will not be an on-site bookseller for the Rose City Author Event. Authors will have books available for sale at their individual tables. You’re also free to bring in books from home.

Will you be utilizing the ticketing method normally seen at Southern Belle events?
With the size of this event, we don’t feel ticketing is necessary. We will have a backup stash of bracelets that we can toss together if needed, but we don’t expect to ticket many, if any, authors. Not sure what we mean by ticketing? You can read about it in a past event packet here!

Is there a hotel room block at the event venue?
There is! You can reserve your room at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront for a discounted rate of $189.00/night here.
