The explosion of comic book conventions has made way for other fan conventions to emerge. This year, ReedPop is introducing BookCon, a convention for book lovers. BookCon takes place on Saturday, May 31st, and features a wide variety of programming including celebrity guests, interactive writing games, and industry panels.
The guests range from actors to famous writers and include Jason Segel, Amy Poehler, Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Mario Batali, tumblr founder David Karp, Humans of New York blogger Brandon Stanton, Stan Lee, and even Grumpy Cat, as well as best-selling novelists such as David Mitchell, who wrote Cloud Atlas, Veronica Roth, who wrote the Divergent trilogy, and John Green, writer of The Fault in Our Stars. These guests will be having conversation about their current and upcoming work in panels throughout the day – except for Grumpy Cat, who will probably just be looking adorably perturbed.
