This past weekend, WestBow Press was happy to be a part of Author Solutions, Inc.’s book gallery at the AARP Life@50+ Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. AARP is an organization that dedicates itself to helping seniors achieve their dreams – a natural match for WestBow Press. Just like AARP is proud of what they do to help people reach their goals, we are proud of what we do to help writers reach their self-publishing goals.
Events such as the Life@50+ Convention give us the chance to reach out to writers who want to become published authors. They also provide an opportunity for WestBow Press authors to make their book available to new readers. This year, there were approximately 11,000 attendees at this year’s event, and 22 WestBow Press titles were on display for them to see.
In addition to the great opportunities that WestBow Press had at the event, AARP provided seemingly endless resources for attendees, as well as entertainment. There were games, giveaways, lectures, movies, and concerts that appealed to a wide array of people – especially to the seniors at the event. Some of the main attractions were a class that discussed using popular technologies, a screening of Jerry Lewis’ new movie, Max Rose, with a Q&A session to follow, and concerts from The Temptations and The Four Tops. Celebrity authors were also in attendance to talk about their books, including Candace Bushnell, Marie Osmond and Bob Newhart.
The lively backdrop of Las Vegas set a great tone for a fun, exciting weekend. It was the type of experience that invigorates people to live life to the fullest and dedicate themselves to their goals and passions. We were proud to feature our authors and their titles, and were very happy to have a successful event.
WestBow Press offers a variety of book galleries and signings to help our authors share their book with as many people as possible. Which event on our list will you be attending?
