I'm so thrilled for the return of an in-person Lubbock-Con in 2023.

The convention will be held February 25th and 26th, 2023 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. Lubbock-Con was the first of its kind here in Lubbock, and it's brought me tremendous joy for many years.

This weekend, Lubbock-Con will have a table at Mahon Library's (1306 9th Street) Lubbock Book Festival on October 15th & 16th. Here's what's the Lubbock Book Festival entails:

This free, two-day long event connects authors and readers through a celebration of literacy, creativity, and stories! From the tiniest of tots to the experienced reader, from YA fiction to crime thriller (and everything in between), this festival highlights the thriving author culture deeply rooted in the South Plains!

Last year, we had over 60 authors in attendance, most of them from the West Texas area. This year, we plan to double down on that momentum by bringing you more authors, engaging panels, chummy book signings, educational writing workshops, and delightful family-fun crafts and activities.

This event also functions as a fundraiser for Literacy Lubbock’s educational programs. Our mission is to change lives through literacy, one person at a time. Please, help us fight back against Lubbock County’s 13% illiteracy rate by attending!

Sounds like a really fun event! And while you're there, you can purchase weekend passes for Lubbock-Con 2023 for only $22. That's less expensive than the price for just Saturday at the door.

Lubbock-Con is also currently accepting applications for vendors and artists. You can find more information about applying at Lubbock-Con's Facebook page.
