Best of Book Riot Live 2016!

To be honest, we weren’t sure what to expect at Book Riot Live just a few days after a devastating US election. Would anyone — including ourselves — be in the mood for cocktail parties, sing-alongs, games, and general bookish shenanigans?

It turns out, spending time with a beautiful community offered just what we all needed: safety, inclusion, restoration, healing, catharsis.

Check out the Storify stream for all the high points that our attendees captured, including: a sobfest of a sing-along with actual Broadway singers, Pictionary with legit comic book artists, an unexpected conversation about nipples between Walter Mosley and Rebecca Schinsky, and so much more.

And above all: thanks to all of you for being our community. GROUP HUG.
