What is Bouchercon?

Bouchercon is the Annual World Mystery Convention, where every year readers, writers, publishers, editors, agents, booksellers and other lovers of crime fiction gather for a long weekend of education, entertainment, and fun.

The first Bouchercon took place in 1970 in Santa Monica. Recent Bouchercons have been held in Chicago, Anchorage, Baltimore, Indianapolis, San Francisco, and St. Louis.

Who is Bouchercon for?

Anyone who loves mysteries. Attendees will include hundreds of fans of crime fiction, along with published authors, aspiring writers, librarians, large and small publishers, editors, agents, and booksellers.

What happens at Bouchercon?

Our days are built around panel discussions and other programming on a wide variety of topics designed to allow lots of interaction among readers and writers. There are typically four or five programs to choose from at  any given moment. They can be humorous or serious, educational or entertaining, and most often are a little bit of everything.

In addition, there are many author signing sessions, a book room, and special events such as award ceremonies, movie nights, and parties. And always, there are a lot of people just hanging out and enjoying each other’s company.
