The 2012 Book 'Em North Carolina Event


The Inaugural Book 'Em North Carolina Writers Conference and Book Fair held on Saturday, February 25, 2012 was a huge success! We brought together more than 80 authors and 6 publishers under one roof to sell and sign their books, participate in panel discussions and talks, network and interact with fans one-on-one. More than 2,000 book lovers came out to buy books, attend the discussions, and meet their favorite authors.
