Tickets for Opening Night Reception

Our Opening Night Reception offers access to our books before the general public's free admission on Friday. The ticket includes entry, appetizers and beverages.


Buying tickets ahead of arrival is a convenience our guests find helpful, but is not required. Please note that it does NOT allow admission ahead of others. To ensure a spot in line, guests should arrive before noon when numbered cards will be distributed.


Beginning at noon on Thursday, September 24, numbered cards will be distributed at the main door of Warren Hall. Each card will allow the purchase of two tickets only.

Book Sellers with a completed California BOE Resale Certificate on file will be given a numbered wristband to expedite checkout.

Beginning at 4:15 PM, admission tickets will be sold for $25/person. Entry will be through the main door only, promptly at 5:00 PM.
