Event Description

About BookCon

In the world of cons, BookCon is a one-of-a-kind event that invites the con community to enjoy top authors from all over. And this year’s event seems to have it all!

On the guest list, we have names like Adam Savage and Frank Miller. This con is bringing together many creative minds for you to meet!

Still, there’s plenty of other aspects to be excited about. From Young Adult Fiction to Sci-Fi, this con covers every aspect of the literary universe. And when you arrive, you’ll get to attend a packed out schedule of panels.

Combined with the workshops, these promise some stellar content as you learn to write, draw, and publish. Just don’t forget to stop by the exhibitors!
