Do you live far, far away from New York City? Are you busy the weekend of June 3rd and 4th? Are you unable to purchase BookCon tickets? Were you too late to secure a spot?
Not to worry, friends.
ReedPOP, the company behind New York Comic Con and BookCon, will be streaming live!
Here’s a link to info about the stream and how to follow along.
It seems like most, if not all, of the content will be live interviews. Users can even suggest questions via comments on the stream. It will be sponsored by EpicReads and hosted on Facebook Live, so you’ll need a Facebook account to participate.
The list of interviewees hasn’t been released yet as of Tuesday, May 30th, but the site says it will be updated “shortly.”
This livestream will be a first for BookCon, and we’re hoping it runs smoothly! The interviews won’t be part of pre-scheduled panels or signings, so they’ll actually be something more than BookCon attendees will see. From what I’ve read, there won’t be an audience at these streaming events, so remote viewers will probably be the first to see the interviews — before actual attendees.
