You’ve heard of Comic Con, but have you heard of the beauty that is Book Con? A once a year event, Book Con is an opportunity to meet dozens of up and coming authors as well as a few more renown ones. This past summer I lucky enough to attend the 2016 Book Con, an event held in Chicago this past year, with the help of a close friend who scored free tickets. We spent the entire time gallivanting around the many stalls and getting our hands on advance copies that wouldn’t be out for months. Book Con also provided the exciting chance to meet famous authors like the Property Brothers and Melissa Meyer, along with many others. This upcoming year’s Book Con will be held in New York City. If you’re in the city, make sure to check it out this coming June. It’ll only be open for three days.
