Introduction

Author talks are one of the key events of any Unconvention weekend. These are a chance for BookCrossers to meet some of their favourite authors and hear them speak about their work.

After each author’s talk we have factored in time for them to mingle with the attendees at the event and each author will be invited to stay for the whole day if they wish to. We are hoping in Leeds to have an opportunity to have all of our author speakers on stage together for a group Q&A session. Each of our writers will also be asked if they wish to bring some of their books along so that signed copies can be purchased.
