AUTHOR SUBMISSIONS & SPECIAL EVENTS

The Call For Submissions for BookExpo’s Author Stage Conversations, Adult Breakfast, Children’s Breakfast, BookCon and other Special Events will open on October 22, 2018 and close on November 16, 2018.

BookExpo’s Author Stage Conversations and Special Events allow you to put your authors on stage in front of an audience comprised of booksellers, librarians, industry media, influential tastemakers, and passionate fans. Stage slots at BookExpo and BookCon allow you to showcase your blockbuster authors, emerging literary superstars, and entertainers behind the year’s hottest titles. After hearing the inside story of their books, BookExpo attendees will be able to expertly curate their inventory, give their customers a unique take on why they need them in their collection, or simply want to seek out your newest books at BookCon!

New to BookExpo 2019, any author submitted for either the Adult Breakfast or Children’s Breakfast will also automatically be considered for our new Happy Hour Signings timeslots that will showcase high-profile authors in an intimate setting who can connect with a select group of booksellers and media.
