Bookish Thought is a type of discussion post where I talk about anything book related and of course leave it open for you all to respond :)
Who doesn’t love a conference or convention? Especially a book themed one?! A chance to see some of your favorite authors speak and sign books!
I actually wouldn’t know, because I haven’t had the chance to attend one yet. Soon though, hopefully. In anticipation of that day, I thought it would be fun to play around with the idea of what author panels I would love to see! [Check out some of the real conventions, etc happening around you at Eventbrite (no compensation of any form recieved)].
I decided to break it down by genre. Also keep in mind that these are all authors that I’ve read, so some popular authors may be missing.
So without further ado I give you the fictional Book Lovers Convention author panels!
Young Adult Author Panel
Urban Fantasy Author Panel
Charles de Lint
(High) Fantasy Author Panel
George RR Martin
Science Fiction Author Panel
Orson Scott Card
Romance Author Panel
Suspense/ Thriller/ Mystery
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Dystopian Worlds Author Panel
John Twelve Hawks
There are many others, but some I wasn’t sure what kind of genre they would fit into and it didn’t seem fair to just slap together a misc. panel. I also had no idea where to place Carlos Ruiz Zafon, though I think mystery is a good spot.
I also realize that some of these authors and the books they’ve written cross over to other genres, but some just deserve their own, like Dystopia.
So tell me, what authors would you love to see on any of these panels (or make up your own panel)?
If you celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving!
