When and where can I pick up my tickets?

There are several ways of accessing tickets to C2C.

  • If you purchased individual event tickets online, your receipt and/or online ticket will get you into all of your scheduled lectures and receptions. Whether printed or saved to your phone, we’re happy to seat you once we see your ticket. Additionally, if you were mailed tickets by a C2C staff member, they will also grant you access to your events.

  • VIP All Access Passes and All Session Passes can be picked up at the registration desk at any of our C2C events. You will receive a lanyard with your pass to wear for easy access to events.

  • Each event will have a guest list. If you lose or forget your tickets, we’ll still make sure you get into your events by checking your name against the guest list.

Why is there a Donate button on the C2C Web site?

Charleston to Charleston, Inc., the parent company behind the Charleston to Charleston Literary Festival, is a 501(c )(3) nonprofit organization. Funded by private sponsorships and donations from attendees like you, we hope to continue bringing today’s hottest thinkers to the Holy City for years to come!

Ever conscious of the need to be good stewards of all funds, we ensure all monies raised are used to benefit the festival and our community at large.

How will I find events if I am unfamiliar with the city?

Printed maps will be available with all locations and addresses documented for all our guests’ convenience.

Will books be available for sale?

Absolutely! First and foremost, we’re here to listen. To learn. We want you to walk away from our author talks much to think about, and the best way to do that is to carry a copy of their words with you!

For 2019, we are partnering with local Charleston bookseller, Buxton Books, to bring our Pop Up Bookshops to you. Buxton Books, owned by Polly and Julian Buxton, has rapidly become a fixture of downtown Charleston. The bookstore recently moved into their new location at 160 King Street, adjacent to the Charleston Library Society. With their dedication to bringing their own lineup of fantastic authors to downtown Charleston and their enthusiasm for all things C2C, we know they will create a pop-up bookshop everyone will admire.

At each Festival venue, Buxton Books will host a Pop Up Bookshop with all our speaker titles for you to take home; additionally, books can be purchased at their store before, during, and after the 2019 C2C Festival! 

Will authors be signing books?

Again, absolutely! Our authors are as excited to meet you, their readers, as you are to meet them.

Signings will take place for thirty minutes onsite following each lecture. You’ll have time to purchase books and get them signed after each event.
