California Readin' 2017

Join us as we welcome 60 authors to California for an afternoon filled with fun and games, gift bags full of books and door prizes.

All attendees will have the chance to win a wonderful basket filled with books and other items, created by each author especially for one lucky reader. Not only will you enjoy refreshments and games at an author table, but this event includes a book signing with NYT best-sellers Robyn Carr, Tessa Dare, Debra Holland, Sarah MacLean, Jane Porter, and JoAnn Ross as well as 52 more best-selling, award-winning and debut authors. The book signing is open to the public and happens immediately after the main event from 4:30-5:30 pm.

We’ve brought in the queen of reader appreciation, Barbara Vey, to help us make this a can’t-miss event for avid readers of romance! We look forward to seeing you in March!

Welcome: Barbara Vey

As Contributing Editor for Publishers Weekly for 7 years, Barbara Vey left to start her own website with the goal of bringing readers and writers together.

She is the recipient of the 2012 RWA Vivian Stephens Industry Award and 2013 RT Melinda Helfer Fairy Godmother Award.

Barbara has created the ultimate reader experience with the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin every April.  The event sells out quickly and has grown from a luncheon into a full weekend.
