Registration Information

There are FOUR paid events you can register for during the Reader Weekend. Registrations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis and space is limited so please register as soon as you can to ensure your spot. Click here to register online.

  • $50 for the Welcome Dinner on Friday evening at the Crowne Plaza with live music, food and drinks.
  • There are TWO options for Saturday: A day-trip to Block Island, Marie’s inspiration for the Gansett Island Series,  OR a day-trip to the Vermont Country Store in Rockingham, VT, the inspiration for Marie’s Green Mountain/Butler Series. You won’t be able to do both trips, so please pick one. Each option offers round trip transportation from the Crowne Plaza along with at least 3 hours for you to explore, shop and have lunch.  If the ferry to Block Island  is cancelled because of bad weather, we will take you to Newport, RI where you can explore Marie’s home town and setting for Treading Water and several of her single titles. The Block Island trip is $50. The Vermont Country Store trip is $75
  • $50 for the Dinner, Q&A and Book Signing with Marie on Saturday night including dinner, drink tickets and the chance to purchase books and merchandise from each of Marie’s series. 

If you are registering multiple people, make sure to create a NEW registration record for EACH PERSON. Don’t complete a duplicate registration for yourself.
