This Saturday, anyone with a New Orleans Public Library card can get free access to the RT Booklovers Convention's Giant Book Fair. The convention is a literary festival for lovers of genre fiction which starts tomorrow and goes till May 18, featuring more than 700 bestselling genre fiction writers and 125 writing workshops for aspiring storytellers. It all goes down at the New Orleans Marriott on Canal Street.
The Giant Book Fair lasts from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Bound books, e-books and self-published books will all be on sale, and participating authors will be around to sign books and posters for fans.
The convention is hosted by RT Book Reviews Magazine - formerly Romantic Times Magazine. NOPL card holders just need to show their cards at the door for entry to the book fair. The convention promises to bring tons of genre fiction fans to New Orleans, with the Marriott and the convention's overflow hotel both sold out of rooms.
