Welcome to book group expo’s official blog!

For those of you who are already members, this is where you can ask all kinds of questions about the upcoming event in October.  Comments and suggestions are always welcome, too.

For those of you who are here because you’re curious or you’ve stumbled upon us, visit our website to learn the details about our organization and our events.  If you become a member on our website, you’ll receive occasional (and I mean that) updates about our events and/or news (and sometimes unique invitations or offers) regarding our guest authors and their books, about our readers and their groups, and about our book group facilitators.

book group expo is a unique weekend event that brings together people who love books—avid readers, acclaimed authors, book club participants, reading group members, up-and-coming writers, booksellers, book group facilitators—for a two-day convocation where participants can talk, eat, drink, make new friends, create a community, celebrate the arts, and enjoy literary events.  Visit our website for more information.

This year — our third year — the Expo is on Saturday and Sunday, October 25th and 26th from 10:00am to 5:30pm (doors open at 9am) at the San Jose Convention Center in Northern California.  For details such as location, hotels, literary salon program, authors, marketplace vendors, and tickets, please visit our website.

    I agree with Victoria.:) This is my first Expo, but I love the salon format, and am so looking forward to it.

    Congratulations on going public with your blog — it looks incredibly professional. I think a settee can be a nice intermediate position between a bed and a chair?

    Hello BGE friends:
    Looking forward to year 3 of this wonderful event.
    Should be especially exciting with just days to go before the election.
    The salons are all about questions and answers, so as an icebreaker, let me ask YOU:
    What is the best question anyone ever asked you on a book panel or tour?
    What is the worst question?
    Looking forward to seeing you all

    I am also looking forward to my 3rd year moderatoring for BGE. It’s a great experience. And for the first time this year, I’ll actually be coming as a book group member! (very exciting development)

    BGE is such an extraordinary, feel-good event. I’ve enjoyed it every year since its inauguration! Looking forward to Oct. 24-25.
