Book Signings and Giveaways – 2021

As we say every year, we LOVE books.

And because birds of a feather tend to flock together, many in our community feel the same.

Because of this, we’ll again host a number of book signings/giveaways at the conference this year. In addition, we’ll give away a number of e-books and e-book vouchers to boot to attendees and participants.

Three important items..


We’ll announce the exact schedule (times) a little closer to the event, so be on the lookout.


All onsite signings and giveaways will be hosted on the 2nd floor of the Convention Center, to decrease congestion and maximize distancing.


All books are FREE – there is no cost. We never sell books to attendees – we give them away.
