DC BOOKSTARS
CASINO ROYALE     OCTOBER 6-7 2023

Join us in October at the extravagant MGM National Harbor for what is gearing up to be a priceless book extravaganza!

 

Dozens of authors will be available to talk about their writing, and you can shop till you drop at our book signing Saturday afternoon. Meet independently published authors, get books signed, and then gamble the night away at our after party Saturday evening.

Friday we pamper writers with our LUCKY 7 industry workshops to help them strengthen their brand.

Saturday is where it's all at, with a book signing by day and an all-inclusive casino soiree after dinner. Visit what is no less than a book fair for adults at the book signing, open to the public from 1pm to 4pm. VIP ticket holders gain coveted early access an hour before GA, as well as goodies from our authors. Later that evening: shine and shimmer, authors and books, and gambling tables and a bar await your most exquisite debut.
