Earlier this month, BookCon came to the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Midtown, Manhattan, where the floors were adorned with publishers, authors, vendors, readers of all ages, and even cosplayers! Like Comic-Con for the literature geeks, New York’s BookCon offered autograph signings, panel discussions, and Q&As all weekend long. Amongst the distinguished guests was acclaimed novelist Chuck Palahniuk. Palahniuk helped define a generation with his 1996 novel Fight Club, which then became a seminal film from director David Fincher in 1999 starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. He has authored countless other novels, short stories, and other works of both fiction and non-fiction literature, notably Choke, Survivor, Lullaby, Haunted, Fight Club 2, and Invisible Monsters. His style tends to cross the borders of the extreme and decent and his work is often considered “transgressional.” During the Con’s Saturday line-up, the author took to the stage to discuss his techniques, where he gets his crazy ideas, and his new book, Adjustment Day.
Grady Hendrix, author of such horror gems as HorrorstÃ¶r, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, and Paperbacks From Hell was signing his upcoming book, We Sold Our Souls, at the Quirk Books booth at BookCon 2018 last week. Resplendent in a white suit with pink tie, I knew I was in for treat with this awesome writer.

At BookCon 2018 this past weekend, publishers converged at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City to the delight of bibliophiles everywhere. I was in heaven and got a chance to meet up with a rep at Chicago Review Press to discuss some of their exciting new titles for the upcoming book season.

The nerds and geeks descended upon the Jacob Javits Center in NYC for BookExpo Thursday and Friday and BookCon Saturday and Sunday. Publishers, large and small, displayed their books for media outlets, educators, librarians, writers, and more… with freebies galore. One of GoD’s very favorite publishers, Quirk Books, were busy beavers with several book signings and a display of delights.

The first weekend in June means that BookExpo and BookCon descends upon the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. Every year, publishers, large and small, hawk their wares and mingle with educators, librarians, media, authors, and all readers.
Besides thousands and thousands of books everywhere you look (some free and some very cheap), there are tons of panels, author signings, activities, giveaways, and much more.
