Book Bonanza is the creation of Author Colleen Hoover and her sisters, Lin Reynolds and Murphy Rae. They dreamed of an event where readers could meet their favorite authors and also raise money for charity. The first Book Bonanza was held in Denver, Colorado and raised over $50,000 for SafeHouse Denver. Over 140 authors signed and 2,200 people converged on the Denver Marriott Tech Center for a weekend of books, unicorns, food trucks and fun. Book Bonanza 2019 was held at the Gaylord Texan and raised over $75,000 for the following nonprofits: Akola Academy, Kulture City, To Write Love on Her Arms, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The Wayfarer Foundation, and Shadow Ranch.
Who attends Book Bonanza?
Book Bonanza is for anyone who love to read and has a heart! Book Bonanza proceeds will benefit buildOn this year as we raise funds to build a school in Malawi. We believe in Good Deeds & Great Reads!
Should I come with friends, alone, or with family?
Everyone is welcome at Book Bonanza — attendees will come with friends, spouses, family, and solo. We have a solo attendees group that coordinates ride shares, dinners, and tag teaming for wristbands. There is plenty to do at the hotel and the Dallas – Fort Worth area has many attractions. Whether exploring fantastic shopping at Northpark Mall or visiting the JFK Museum or world-class museums and zoos, DFW has it all.
You, Me, Us, Them and well….. and Colleen, Lin and Murphy too!
