Confab refers to a small gathering of people. It’s a more intimate conference not common to gigantic book trades and exhibitions. With ReadersMagnet, an ordinary booth at LATFOB 2023 turned into a confab-like atmosphere.

The LA Times Festival of Books 2023 culminated almost a week ago. Once again, ReadersMagnet created a brilliant way to give indie authors the voice that they deserve. Aside from displaying more than a hundred books and facilitating book signings, RM’s booth became a platform for authors to speak and share their stories with the world. The LATFOB last April 22 to 23 will be a memorable and historical book fair for ReadersMagnet and its loyal authors.

The Biggest Literary Event in the Country

“More than 500 writers, experts, and storytellers,” reported the Los Angeles Times, “have come together to celebrate all things literary with throngs of book-loving fans. Scores of book tents and food trucks added to the upbeat atmosphere.” With that said, ReadersMagnet was grateful to have one of the biggest tents at the book festival.

The report went on to say, “The festival bills itself as the biggest literary event in the country. Last year’s event, which was the first in-person festival after a two-year pandemic hiatus, attracted more than 155,000 people over two days.” Indeed, the in-person event at the University of Southern California was visited by thousands of fairgoers from different parts of the country.

The Confab-Like Booth of ReadersMagnet

The ReadersMagnet Book Confab started last year in Tribeca, New York. Due to its success, the second installation of the Confab is now ongoing in San Francisco, California, from April 28 to 30, 2023. The company, a finalist of the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics 2022, didn’t expect that the same enthusiasm could happen at the LA Times Festival of Books 2023.

ReadersMagnet installed a mic to give a voice to the authors. As expected, our indie writers grabbed the opportunity to share the stories behind the literary works they’ve created. The videos were taken live on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter to make sure that they were recorded and shared with the world. It was also a way for the non-attendees to see the activities at LATFOB in real-time.

The Longing to Speak, the Yearning to Get Heard

On the last day of the LA Times Festival of Books 2023, visiting authors thanked ReadersMagnet for giving a haven for them and their literary works. More than a book display and book signing, they also had an opportunity to speak and went live on the internet.

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books has always been a big help in spreading literacy and promoting books. With that in mind, ReadersMagnet helped to give authors a platform for them to share not only their publishing journey but also their personal stories. Despite the heat of the day, the authors made the event more engaging online and offline.
