Booktalk Nation


About Booktalk Nation

Booktalk Nation's nationwide, phone-in author talks connect readers with authors while supporting independent bookstores. 

You can sign up for any event on the Booktalk Nation website and listen to your favorite authors discuss their latest book, buy signed personalized copies, and best of all you will be supporting your local independent bookstore with every purchase—all from the comfort of your own living room. 
These talks are free* and last no more than 30 minutes. You can submit questions before the talk at the Booktalk Nation website or, for some calls, during the live talk.

Our goal is to have a service that will allow traditional bookstores to support each other, and sell books where they never would otherwise — outside their immediate areas. It will also benefit the authors who participate in it. We see this as a supplement to, not a substitute for, a traditional book tour.
We hope you will join us in supporting the key role that independent bookstores play in promoting a vibrant literary culture. 
* Talks on Booktalk Nation are free as long as your phone plan includes unlimited domestic calls.
