The international best-selling author Linwood Barclay headlines this year’s Bookapalooza, on Saturday, July 13 at the Minden Community Center. Tickets are on sale now!


Bookapalooza celebrates the rich literary life of the Highlands, giving

readers a chance to meet dozens of local authors. It’s an experience

you can’t find anywhere else and a book lover’s dream! The event is

generously sponsored by Parker Pad and Printing.


Linwood Barclay’s best-selling thrillers include Broken Promise, The

Lie  Maker, and his new release, I Will Ruin You. He’s also the author of

two thrillers for younger readers, Chase and Escape. He has more

than seven million copies in print.


Bookapalooza begins at noon with an exhibit hall filled with dozens of local authors. Admission to the exhibit hall is free. (Want to become an exhibitor? Register.)


A Conversation with Linwood Barclay happens at 3:00, followed by a book signing. Early bird tickets (until July 1) are $25. Children under 13 are free when accompanied by an adult.


The Dominion Hotel, Minden, is sponsoring a special Reception and Dinner with Linwood Barclay at 6pm. This will give readers and fans an opportunity for a more intimate encounter with the author. Early bird tickets are $60, or $75 for the two tickets (Conversation and Dinner) combined.
