2016 Conference Special Events


There are a number of special events available to attend during the Conference. We'd love to see you at as many as you can attend!






Author Presentation and Reception
Evening, Free


Marc Tyler Nobleman is the author of more than 70 books, many for young readers. Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman made the front page of USA Today for a startling discovery it reveals. Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman was covered by outlets including NPR's All Things Considered and the New York Times. The book led to an invitation to give a TED talk...and contains a research bombshell that may change pop culture history. 

His upcoming nonfiction includes Thirty Minutes Over Oregon (a WWII famous first that is not yet famous) and Fairy Spell (about the Cottingley fairies of WWI-era England).
Marc has been invited to speak at conferences, schools, and other venues in more than half of the 50 states, Tanzania, India, United Arab Emirates, Chile, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Guam. He blogs about adventures in publishing (from research victories to promotional gambles) at Noblemania. Twitter: @MarcTNobleman.
