What Authors Say About The NBCC
"NBCC... the most important book club conference for authors and publishers of color... and where I go to meet and greet the authors I love to read. NBCC does for the Atlanta what the Harlem Book Fair does for the New York – provides access and information for both the up-and- coming as well as the established authors."
– Eric Jerome Dickey, New York Times best-selling author

"The National Book Club Conference is hands-down the most fabulous event I attend each year, and it is the only event that allows multiple authors to come together with hundreds of very dedicated readers – readers that we never would have been blessed to meet otherwise. It is one of the few events I know of that highly benefits publishers, authors, and readers all at the same time and the reason I participate every single year."
– Kimberla Lawson Roby, New York Times best-selling author

"The NBCC was truly a wonderful experience. The support and love and response I received from the loyal and enthusiastic book club members touched my heart. They remind me of why I write and why I launched my own independent publishing company, DownSouth Press. Thank you, Curtis, for all the work you do for writers, for readers and for African- American literature. You are a treasure, and we do appreciate you."
– Tina McElroy Ansa, New York Times best-selling author

"There is no book event that we look forward to as much as we do the National Book Club Conference, and as usual, this year's event was outstanding. You have created the best environment for both authors and book lovers. It is intimate, warm, friendly and informative – despite the 600+ enthusiastic book club members in attendance. The NBCC is the only forum to offer authors—both newly published and established – an opportunity to interact, both formally and casually, with so many fans who we know buy the books and read them! Thanks for bringing us together, and for always making us feel special. Where else is there an author red carpet? We can't wait for the next one."
– Donna Grant & Virginia DeBerry, best-selling authors

What Readers Say About The NBCC
"One of the most extraordinary experiences of my life! It was all you had promised and more. This could not have happened at a better time in my life. I will be coming as long as the Lord allows, and I will be bringing new people, including new authors. See you next year!" -- Gwendolyn Beam, Peace of Mind Book Club, Boilingbrook, Illinois "All I can say is, "Wow!!!" The conference was more than I could ever dream of. My book club, "My Sisters & Me," was so excited. We had the best time. We can't wait until next year."
-- Debra Smith, My Sisters & Me Literary Guild, Houston, Texas

"It was an honor to be among so many avid African American book lovers and our book club the Black Pearls will be looking forward to coming next year. . . We are all fortunate to be a part of this yearly experience."
– Erica T. Munn, Black Pearls, Los Angeles, CA

"Thank you for giving such a great book lover's celebration. We truly experienced the spirit of the Lord in that place. Thanks again for the one-in-a-million, ultimate book lovers weekend."
– Josephine Fulcher Anderson, Norwalk, CT

"This top-shelf event has definitely succeeded in bringing our people together for the purpose of encouraging individuals to respect, enjoy and spread the LOVE of reading all over our communities, state, country and world. I am very grateful that such an event exists."
– Judi Belle Raines, Sugar and Spice Book Club, Queens, NY
