More Guests and First Panel Announced for BookCon 2020


As December comes to a close, we are another month closer to BookCon 2020! This convention combines storytelling and pop culture through panels, signings, and exhibitors and is not to be missed. Over the past few weeks, more guests have been added. Some include Terry Brooks (The Shanara Chronicles), Lamar Giles (Not So Pure and Simple), Jenny Han (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), Leah Johnson (You Should See Me in a Crown), Bill Konigsberg (Openly Straight), Ryan La Sala (Reverie), and David Levithan (19 Love Songs). You can keep checking the guest list as more are added as the convention gets closer.

BookCon also announced one of their first panels: The Diverse Super Heroes Panel featuring Preeti Chhibber (Orientation [Marvel Avengers Assembly #1]), Zoraida Cordova (Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View), Nicky Drayden (Overwatch The Hero of Numbani), and Nic Stone (Shuri: A Black Panther Novel [Marvel]).

BookCon will take place on May 30 and 31, 2020 at the Javits Center in New York City. You can purchase tickets here as well as take a look back at our recaps from BookCon 2019 Day One and Day Two.

Nicole joined Nerds and Beyond in 2019 and is excited to finally get back into writing. As a life-long nerdy fangirl from New Jersey, she loves Supernatural and its fandom as well as anything Wayward, Kings of Con, Lucifer, Wynonna Earp, and the musical Bandstand. She’s constantly listening to Louden Swain, The Station Breaks, Briana Buckmaster, The Avett Brothers, The Mots Nouveaux, or any of Aaron Mahnke’s podcasts. When she’s not [procrastinating] on Twitter, you can usually find her binging Netflix with her dog, reading fanfic, or daydreaming about being back in Arizona or Disney World!
