Meet the Authors

When you’re in a lull from sessions or need a break, stop by the AAM bookstore in Hall D/E of the convention center. We’ll have a number of titles for sale (including AAM’s four newest titles) and, perhaps most importantly, we’ll have authors around for signings.

Here’s a list of authors, times and locations (if they won’t be at the bookstore).
