Rust City Book Con 2017

Rust City Book Con is a casual convention and book signing in Troy, MI, with the intent to introduce readers to new authors as well as the chance to interact with current favorites.

We’ll be focusing on all GENRE fiction, so there’s bound to be some interesting and diverse topics discussed at the daily panels. In the evenings we’ll be partying and creating some fascinating mayhem with meet & greets, parties, and other activities.

Saturday’s charity book sale and signing is a FREE activity, open to the public, however we are asking everyone to bring a gently used book (childrens through adult) to help fill a new #LittleFreeLibrary to be installed within the community after the event. The library will be revealed/displayed throughout the weekend.

We’ll have a fabulous lineup of authors, ranging from indie to NYT Bestsellers, that will be sure to tempt readers of all walks of life. Come celebrate the authors who write the stories we love to read with us – Aug 4-6, 2017!

I know many readers tend to stick with their preferred genres, and there’s nothing wrong with that; but you never know what you’ll find, what you’ll like, unless you take a look.
