Signed Books

Imagine receiving a gift that provides an instant and valued connection between you and an acclaimed author. That’s the experience signed books create and why they make a cherished gift for the booklover in your life—including yourself!

We have 3 ways to give (and receive) signed books. Choose what's right for you!


Signed First Edition Club

Every month, our team selects a particularly noteworthy book from an upcoming or established author. All copies are hand-signed in a hardcover, first edition print.

Many of our authors have gone on to win prestigious awards:

  • Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See recently brought home the Pulitzer Prize
  • Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life was shortlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize and was a finalist for The National Book Award
  • Bill Clegg’s Did You Ever Have a Family was longlisted for the 2015 National Book Award and Man Booker Prize award

Other notable authors we have featured include Colm Toibin, B.J. Novak, Marilynn Robinson, Elizabeth Strout, Ruth Ozeki, Billy Collins, Matthew Thomas and many more.

Books can be shipped monthly or picked up at the store. Build or boost your literary collection today or let us help you with your gift list. Give us a call at (203) 245-3959 or e-mail us at books@rjjulia.com. (Free shipping offer does not apply to Signed First Edition Club.)

Author Events

We offer over 300 events annually for adults and kids. When you attend an event or pre-order a book for the event, you can get your book signed, and in many cases, personalized by your favorite authors. For a complete list of upcoming author events, click here.


Signed Books in the Store and Online

We regularly receive notable signed books that make perfect gifts for family, friends — and you!  Quantities are strictly limited — we recommend ordering early due to the high demand for signed books. If ordering after store hours, and a signed copy is no longer available, you will be notified and your card will not be charged.
