Super Book Weekend!

By Kathie Bennett

Welcome aboard the Queen Mary for Super Book Weekend in the celebration of twenty-two best-selling authors and your favorite books!

On Saturday, February 1st, 2020, Magic Time Literary Publicity, together with Book Club Central and Adventures by the Book, will launch Super Book Weekend aboard the luxurious and historic Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. This exciting weekend invites book enthusiasts and book clubs from around the country for the experience of a lifetime, complete with the national anthem, a half-time show, four quarters of excitement, crowd-pleasing food, a tailgating party and maybe even some memorable commercials.

Internationally renowned author and classically trained soprano Kate Quinn will sing the national anthem as a kick off for two amazing teams of authors.

Throughout 2020, fun events are in the works with best-selling authors on the literary landscape. Stay tuned for announcements of upcoming national tours with fabulous events for Karen White, Susan Meissner, Kristy Woodson Harvey, Cassandra King Conroy, Kristina McMorris, Mary Alice Monroe, Kate Quinn, Colleen Oakley, Kimmery Martin, Kristin Harmel, Fiona Davis, Jeffrey Blount and Beatriz Williams! Book friends are the best friends, and these friendships are born through forever memories of time spent with their favorite authors and most beloved books.

We hope you will join us in Long Beach, California, for “tailgate” fun and festivities all day aboard the Queen Mary!
