BookCon is the ultimate celebration of books, where your favorite stories come to life.

BookCon is an immersive experience that features interactive, forward thinking content such as:

  • Panels and Q&As with the hottest authors, celebrities and content creators
  • A Show Floor with the most influential publishers in the world
  • Autographing sessions


This year, all signings that take place in the BookCon Autographing Area will be digitally ticketed before the Show. Tickets will be distributed to Fans on a first come, first serve basis – so the earlier you visit this page the more likely you are to receive Tickets for the signings you want to attend. Autographing Area Ticketing closes on Friday, 06/01 at 6:00 PM ET.


We know you’re an avid reader, but now we want to help you become an avid writer. Turn the next page and start your story from the very beginning. For the first time ever, BookCon will offer workshops in Fiction, Non-Fiction and Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Join us as we dive into what makes good writing and discover a new spark inside yourself! All Writing Workshops are in conjunction with the MFA Writing department at Sarah Lawrence College.


BookCon is the event where storytelling and pop culture collide and it’s the event for you!
