Where readers and authors come together. . . and depart friends.

“No event offers the intimate access to authors as the NBCC.”

For the 17th-Annual National Book Club Conference, August 2-4, 2019 at the luxurious InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel, we are again offering Literary Bliss, this time with a twist: Men’s Day. For an entire day, ALL Featured Authors will be men, including the great Walter Mosley, Eric Jerome Dickey, Shawn T. Blanchard, Travis Hunter, Brandon Massey, Victor McGlothlin,  Brian W. Smith and Marc Lacy. . . for starters. More dynamic men will be added. Additionally, for 2019, we will have an off-site reception a beautiful, historical destination and an after-dinner dessert party following our Awards Dinner on Saturday, August 3rd, with a deejay, dancing (including Soul Train Line) and more.

Since its inception, some of the most famous and talented authors have been a part of our weekend, including NBCC Literary Legend honoree Alice Walker, Terry McMillan, Iyanla Vanzant, Jenifer Lewis, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Susan L. Taylor,  Bryan Stevenson, Pearl Cleage, Hill Harper, Dr. Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Roland S. Martin, Terrie Williams, Tyrese Gibson, Zane, Kimberla Lawson Roby, Judge Glenda Hatchette, Victoria Rowell and Stephen L. Carter, among many others, including the late E. Lynn Harris, Bebe Moore Campbell, Francis Ray and J. California Cooper.

Important to the NBCC, however, is to introduce new or lesser-known authors that have created stories that are entertaining, informative and important. Register now, as our availability quickly fills and we limit attendees to maintain a level of intimacy.
