RT Booklovers Convention is Coming to KC!
April 25, 2013
One of my best memories from last year is traveling to Chicago to attend the RT Booklovers Convention. After five days of book signings, authors’ workshops, fantastic all-day parties, and a TON of swag, I couldn’t wait to get home and tell everyone about the fabulous time I had. Authors are our Rock Stars after all, so meeting so many of them in person was the ultimate thrill! One of my co-attendees, Beth Atwater, called the convention "one giant slumber party with 1,000 of your best friends." What could be better than that?
Then we heard the news: RT is bringing all the fun of their convention to Kansas City May 1st - May 5th!
For those who don’t know, RT Book Reviews is a book review magazine that started in the early 1980s to keep readers up to date on all the new authors and titles being published in over 15 genres. It’s a great magazine for anyone who is a fan of reading. (And boy do they know how to put on a convention!)
Full registration for the Convention is now closed, but they are still selling 1-day passes. Definitely mark your calendars for Saturday, May 4 because that is Fan Day! This is a book fair where you can meet more than 450 authors and all you need to do is show up with your library card for free admission. The fair runs from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
I hope to see some of you there!
