Hey book lovers! We all developed a lifelong appreciation for books from those rolling carts in our school gym, right? Well, allow us to bring you that same joy and nostalgia at the Rose City Comic Con Book Fair—now in partnership with the world’s largest independent bookstore, Powell’s Books!

Book Fair is a headquarters for lit lovers. Head to the Book Fair panel room throughout the weekend, then catch author signings right after at the RCCC Bookstore, powered by Powell’s. Whether you’re a book-devouring literary super fan, a modern-day Melville, or simply looking for your next read, you won’t want to miss this experience!
