Where readers and authors come together. . . and depart friends.

“No event offers the intimate access to authors as the NBCC.”

The NBCC will celebrate its landmark 15th year at its 2017 event, July 28-30 at the luxurious Loews Atlanta hotel. Since its inception, some of the most famous and talented authors have been a part of what the NBCC calls “literary bliss,” including Walter Mosley, Terry McMillan, Iyanla Vanzant, Susan L. Taylor, Pearl Cleage, Hill Harper, Dr. Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Roland S. Martin, Terrie Williams, Tyrese Gibson, Zane, Eric Jerome Dickey, Kimberla Lawson Roby, Rolonda Watts and Stephen L. Carter, among others, including the late E. Lynn Harris, Walter Dean Myers, Bebe Moore Campbell, Francis Ray and J. California Cooper.

Important to the NBCC, however, is to introduce new or lesser-known authors that have created stories that are entertaining, informative and important.
