New Year, New Location

Location, Location, Location

If you came to YAS Book Con last year, you might notice that we’ve changed the location. All of the daytime events will now be happening in the awesome Downing Student Union on the campus of Western Kentucky University. The event will still be free and open to the public – so anyone and everyone is welcome to join the fun.

The day will be split into 5 blocks, with writing workshops and panel discussions happening during each (most of them on the third floor). A yoga session will also be back by popular demand.

So far, we’ve got 6 panel discussions and 4 writing workshops scheduled, with more to be announced in the evening. Most of the evening events will be in Bowling Green’s lovely downtown, at spots like Spencer’s Coffee and Little Fox Bakery.

Keep an eye on this page and the Schedule section on our home-page for an updated schedule you can print off and bring with you day-of.

YAS Book Con will be fast-paced and super fun, so come prepared to be overwhelmed (in a good way) by authors and fans who love books as much as you do.

Barnes & Noble Booksellers will be setting up shop in DSU Room 3020 (third floor). Picture this room without all the chairs and projector. Books and book-themed trinkets will be available for sale all day. Pick up a few books from your favorite author attending YAS Book Con, then head out to the mezzanine to get it signed.
