BookCon Ticket Giveaway – Winner has been notified!

BookConLogoGuess who’s having another awesome giveaway? That’s right, your favorite librarians. We have two tickets to give away to…drum roll please…BookCon! We are thrilled to partner with BookCon to share information about this huge event with our readers, and also to allow one lucky person – and a friend – to attend!

It’s all happening on May 30 and 31, 2015 in New York City. Writers and celebrities like Meg Cabot (The Princess Diaries), Aisha Saeed (#WeNeedDiverseBooks), Anthony Breznican (Brutal Youth), and Libba Bray (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy), Jodi Picoult (My Sister’s Keeper)- and many, many more – will be there to tell stories, share content, meet and greet, and sign autographs. There will be literary quiz shows and other interactive activities too. BookCon is “where storytelling and pop culture collide.”

All you have to do is comment on this post and tell us why you’d like to attend. One person will be picked at random for the pair of tickets. (Sorry…we’re only getting you IN with two free tickets. Travel and accommodations are up to you.) Comments will close on March 31, 2015. Winners will be notified on April 1, 2015 by e-mail – so be sure to use a valid email address on the comment form.

Now hurry down to the comments and tell us why you want to attend. Good luck, everyone!

UPDATE/CLARIFICATION! The giveaway is for two Adult Saturday tickets good for entry on Saturday, May 30 only, not for both days!

Update #2: I’ve moved these five comments to the other BookCon giveaway post to be included in the drawing. Comments are now closed here and the drawing is happening today!

Congratulations to Jessica Green, the random winner of the Saturday tickets to BookCon! Thanks or playing, everybody, and don’t forget that you can still buy tickets here.

  • Wow, I had no idea such a con existed…..Love to attend mostly as I recognize three quarter of the list!! I’ve also never been to NYC so I’d be thrilled to attend!

  • I couldn’t think of a better way to a weekend.Perhaps my dream will come true. Books! Books! Books! Between my BFF Pat and myself i know we read the authors mentioned. To meet them would be AMAZING! To meet new authors and get more books! OMG! Am i still standing!!!!!

  • Books, authors, people who cherish books and NYC? Count me in (free entry or not!)

  • I would love to attend this event! I never knew Book Con existed!!! I’m so excited I can hardly type!!! I want the tickets because, as eveyone who knows me knows, I’d rather read than eat!!! If I were only allowed to eat OR read, I’d be dead in 2-3 weeks… however long it would take to starve to death!!! I’ll take my mother who fostered my love of reading by getting me my first library card in kindergarten. Thanks, Mommy!

  • This sounds amazing!!!!:)
