During the Expo, attendees will have opportunities to engage with nearly 100 local, regional, and international Authors in an up-close and personal way to learn about their work, what inspires them, and to purchase their books.  There are Celebrity Author breakout presentations, led by New York Times best-selling authors, book signing session, food trucks, and a variety of activities designed to keep both Authors and Readers engaged, educated, and entertained through activities throughout the day.  ​

This year the Expo will also feature Author Break-Out Sessions, including (new for 2024) student-focused sessions where AIBF will be providing no-cost copies of the authors’ books to registered student attendees! The Kids Zone will be available to keep the young ones engaged, as well as the usual activities, incentives, prizes, book signings, food trucks, and other attractions.
