Our Mission

The Black Authors Book Expo is committed to providing visibility to published authors of color in all genres and styles. Contrary to typical book fairs, the expo provides a unique opportunity for African American authors of all ages to promote and present their work up close and personal with the community. Our intent is to highlight and support the important contributions from a diverse range of black authors in the area. We endeavor to cultivate a family-friendly environment where literacy is encouraged and culture is celebrated. 

Previous Book Expo

One 6ft. table and two chairs.

Are there any age restrictions for authors?

No there are not. We have had authors as young as 6 and as experienced as 70 years of age. 

Are there any genre restrictions?

All genres are welcome! Our expo does not discriminate. We just ask that authors do not have any large nude or obscene images.

How many authors will be participating?

We will not accept more than 30 authors per day.

Is there any prohibited merchandise?/Can I sell something other than my literary work?

As a literacy vendor the only items that you are permitted to sell are your published work. No t-shirts, candles, pens, food items; etc.
