Reader Registration and Hotel
Thank you for joining us in Deadwood, South Dakota June 18-20, 2020! Just like in 2017,2018, and 2019 we have created an entire weekend of fun and adventurous outings, and we hope you’ll be with us right from the start on. The link to reserve your hotel with our amazing room rates will be available in the coming months.
For 2020, we’ve again reserved the amazing 13,000 square foot Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center for the Book Fair. This year, everyone loved the hotel, guest rooms, casino, restaurants, bars, and especially the Event Center where the Book Fair, Breakfast With the Authors, and the Meet-and-Greet took place. And in 2020, we’ll be doing all those events again, and we’ve even found more to do in this gorgeous hotel, too!
It takes time to organize these events so keep checking back for more info. Again this year, any tickets purchased are non-refundable, but you may sell and/or transfer them to other attendees if you find you are unable to attend.
