This year I was able to attend the Atlanta Kickback, which is a type of book convention. I’ve titled it the “Atlanta Kickback Book Convention” because it is normally titled the “Atlanta Kickback”, which makes it sound like it is a cookout happening or a family reunion. The title doesn’t tell you what it actually is.
Anyway, enough of the rant of what confused me when I was looking for book conventions in Atlanta. The “Atlanta Kickback” was started by a group of friends who had their own type of book club, and called themselves 556 Book Chicks. They decided to start this book convention, which celebrates black authors and books. There were so many authors there selling their books and promoting themselves. It’s still really new so there are a lot of areas for growth. It was only their second year hosting this event, and they already had a great author turnout.
Here you can see my vlog and thoughts about the Atlanta Kickback while I was there!! Let me know what you think and if you’ll try and attend next year!! Until Next Time,
