The Books conference is, not surprisingly, a place to talk about books. Books you’ve read, books you haven’t, books you’ve never heard of, books you’re bound to want to read after hearing about them. Books by specific authors, by genre, by subject, by hook or by crook. Books about everything under the sun and then some.

Books is also a place for book-related phenomena — favorite bookstores, pointers on where to find the book you’re looking for, hot tips by riveted readers, forthcoming books, banned books, meditations on the nature of narrative and the experience of reading, books on tape, great first lines and a few rotten ones, the world in the wake of books (e.g. book-banning controversies) — all this and more.
