BookCon is the event where storytelling and pop culture collide. Think ComicCon but for the literary world. Last year was a huge success with many literary greats and celebrities in attendance. This year looks to be on par with some great authors already announced including: Hafsah Faizal, Kat Cho, Ransom Riggs, Terry Brooks, Kim Harrison, Zoraida Cordova, Marie Lu, Angie Thomas, Nic Stone, and Claire Legrand! Those are just a few and new authors are added every day. Click here for information on the Con and to purchase tickets.
