NOTE: Due to the uncertainty of the course of the Covid-19 virus over the next several months and the hesitancy of our target demographic to travel to book events in 2021, the 2021 NBBF will be virtual again this year. We will return to our in-person event in 2022.

NOTE: Authors who are interested in year-round advertising for their books to reach book clubs, media, book reviewers, consumers, bookstores and libraries should review the options at Cushcity.com, sponsor of NBBF. All NBBF deposits and fees, including advertising fees, are non-refundable.
