The National Black Book Festival

The National Black Book Festival (NBBF) will be held this year on June 10-12 in Houston, Texas.  The NBBF is an annual event that is sponsored by, the world's largest African-American online retailer.  The festival attracts authors, publishers, book clubs and readers from across the US. 

New and notable authors will be featured.  The authors will be grouped by genre and 18 different genres will be represented.  Book signings, discussions, workshops and seminars are just a few of the activities planned for the festival.  In conjunction with the NBFF, a Literary Breakthrough Conference will be held on Friday, June 10.  The conference is designed to help authors get signed, published and gain publicity.

All activities will be held at the Doubletree hotel in downtown Houston.  Tickets are only $5 for the public.  Special events require advanced ticket purchase.  More information can be found at  The website contains a list of featured authors and a schedule of events.  This festival promises to be beneficial for participants and attendees.  I am really looking forward to it.
