The Traveling Bookshelf Author Event brings together authors and readers in a fun, stress-free environment. Meet the authors you love and discover your next favorite read. Featuring more than 60 authors, The Traveling Bookshelf is excited to be at the Grand Prairie Event & Convention Center in EpicCentral. There are dozens of restaurants and entertainment options within a 5 minute drive, many within walking distance.

Tickets are sold by entry time, noon and 1:00pm. Attendees have the opportunity to purchase 2 add-ons to be delivered at the event.

1. The Traveling Bookshelf Book Beau is a custom padded book sleeve to protect your favorite reads. Your Book Beau purchase includes a Sharpie to collect signatures from authors and your book besties. The Indie Size sleeve fits most paperbacks, smaller hardbacks, an iPad, or a Kindle.

2. The Traveling Bookshelf Branded Insulated Tumbler is designed to collect and display custom stickers from authors. The stainless steel 20 oz. skinny tumbler is not dishwasher safe. The stickers are automobile grade adhesive vinyl. Attendees will have the opportunity to have their custom tumbler epoxied after the event for an additional fee.

Both the Book Beau and Tumbler will be unique mementoes of your Traveling Bookshelf experience.
***Add-on can be purchased when you buy your tickets. There will be a very limited number available at the event.

All attendees will receive a Traveling Bookshelf tote and signing card suitable for framing. Tickets are non-refundable.
