Come See Us in Orlando!

Consortium will be at Annual next week, and we’d love to see you! We’ll be at booth 2227. As usual, we’ll have author signings, book and galley giveaways, candy, and lots of swag!

Publishers in Our Aisle

Each publisher will have their own giveaways and fun, new books for you to see!

Shonna M Humphrey will have a panel of her own at the Pop Top Stage on Saturday, June 25th. The event is from 9:00 to 9:50 am, and features an author signing following the presentation. She will be signing ARCs of her latest book, Dirt Roads & Diner Pie.

William Grill and Kevin McCloskey will be on a panel for the Graphic Novel Stage, on Saturday, June 25th, from 9:30 to 10:20 am. Titled “Reaching Reluctant Readers,” the panel aims to discuss ways that graphic novels reach those difficult-to-engage-readers. They will share the panel with two other great authors and artists, Jim Ottaviani and MK Reed. The panel will also feature a signing following the presentation. William Grill will sign copies of The Wolves of Currumpaw, and Kevin McCloskey will sign copies of The Real Poop on Pigeons!
