The Bennington Bookshop supports authors through its consignment program. The aim of the consignment program is to feature a wide range of books published independently or through non-traditional channels and offer these books to a wider audience. You can find a copy of our consignment agreement below.

Please note: We cannot accept books on consignment until they have been approved by our team. Any books sent without prior approval will be donated or given away. Please contact Phil for more information. Thank you.
