How is the information presented?
Our sessions are primarily lecture-style, with many presenters using audio-video technology. The format is informal, and will vary based on the presenter; some sessions feature product sampling and workshop activities. Authors are generally available to sign books at the conclusion of their presentations, and most sessions feature a question & answer period. If you cannot get your question answered during a session, most presenters are very accessible throughout the event.
Can I videotape the presentations?
No, we do not allow videotaping.
What is The Big Book Club Boulevard exhibition?
The exhibitor area will include local and regional authors, book publishers, artists, fashion accessories, educational information and more.
Do you have any special hotel rates for attendees?
Special hotel rates for the Big Book Club Getaway will be available at the beautiful Mohegan Sun Hotel (parking is complimentary and the hotel is attached to the Convention Center for easy access to the event) and the nearby Hyatt Place. We encourage you to make your reservations early as these room blocks will sell out.
Are there any meals provided?
No, all meals are your responsibility, and we strongly recommend that you make dinner reservations well in advance. The Mohegan Sun features a broad range of eating establishments that are within easy walking distance to the Convention Center, including Geno’s Fastbreak Food Court.
What should I wear to the Big Book Club Getaway?
We encourage everyone to dress up for the Friday night opening presentation. Following the reception we encourage you to experience the many fabulous restaurants, nightclubs, casinos, spa and shops that the resort has to offer. We recommend wearing comfortable clothes for the Saturday sessions including yoga-wear for the Big Yoga Class.
