BookExpo and BookCon are on again! Online, that is.
At one point, both had been postponed from late May to late July. But because things still feel unstable and unsafe, organizers decided to move to a virtual format in order to ensure access to the popular events.
Book Expo is now from May 26-29, and will be presented on BookExpo Facebook
You can find the current schedule here. The children’s book event is now a Thursday night DINNER, with a panel featuring much loved middle-grade author Judy Blume, along with Misty Copeland, Raj Haldar, Marie Lu, Kwame Mbalia, and Natalie Portman.
BookCon Online will be May 30 and 31, presented on the BookCon Facebook page. Here’s the current schedule–it looks amazing.
BOTH events will be free and open to the public. Be sure to “like” both of those Facebook pages, so that you can access their programming!
Organizers said an additional day will be added in July, with programming focused on booksellers.
