The big draw is FAN-tastic Day on Saturday, May 17th, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. FAN-tastic Day is all about readers with tons of giveaways - book addicts are encouraged to bring an empty suitcase for all the free books, purchased books and giveaways. The FAN-tastic Day pass is only $55.

More than 700 authors, representing 15 genres will sell and sign copies of their novels in two gigantic ballrooms. Meet New York Times bestselling authors like E L James (Fifty Shades of Grey), Veronica Roth (Divergent), Charlaine Harris (HBO's True Blood series) Heather Graham, Debbie Macomber, Francis Rivers, Brenda Jackson and dozens of local authors and hundreds more. This is New Orleanians' chance to mix and mingle with their favorite authors.
