Booktopia is a two-day weekend and celebration of reading, readers, and authors with multiple authors and attendees from around the country converging on beautiful Manchester, Vermont. Booktopia started as an event in collaboration with Books on the Nightstand, a podcast hosted by Ann Kingman and Michael Kindness, both sales representatives for Random House publishers. Now it continues on the first weekend of May with exclusive author events, presentations, book signings, meet and greets, and a celebratory dinner.
“Booktopia is always a special event. This gathering of authors, book sharing with old friends and new, laughter, reflection, hosted by the outstanding Independent Bookstore, Northshire in the beautiful backdrop of the Village of Manchester, was phenomenal. Paraphrasing Karen King Seaman ‘We are living in Booktopia Afterglow. If only this could be bottled.’”–Carol Kubala
