An Overview Of The 2013 RT Booklovers Convention

This year’s convention was record breaking. We had the most walk-ins, the most pre-registered full program attendees, over 125 workshops and a visit from the one and only E.L. James. Our week was full of interesting workshops, amazing events and evening parties that will live on in our memories. It won't be long before we dive into planning next year’s convention in New Orleans, (you can already submit a workshop proposal for RT 2014). But first, enjoy this look back at some of the highlights of this year’s event!
