So, has anyone else heard about BookCon? I only just learned about it a few days ago and, sadly, it’s much too close for me to try and take time off to go. :( However, it looks pretty interesting so I thought I would share with you all! Anyone going?
BookCon is crafted for creative-minded, passionate book fans in the publishing capital of the world. Every aspect of the show is thoughtfully designed to appeal to the modern-day book lover with an appreciation for broader pop-culture and where these worlds intersect. Through the course of the event, attendees will experience the origin of the story in all its forms by interacting with the authors, publishers, celebrities, and creators of content that influence everything we read, hear, and see.
BookCon’s headline event will feature a panel with Amy Poehler and Martin Short who will have books coming out this fall from Dey Street Books and HarperCollins, respectively. Best-selling author, John Grisham, and comic book legend, Stan Lee, will headline other marquee events at this inaugural show. Future panels and Q&A’s along with talent will be announced soon.
Additional exciting details about BookCon exhibitors, talent, and sponsors will be revealed in the coming weeks. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit TheBookCon.com or BookCon’s social media pages (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram).
