Justine Ezarik, Shane Dawson, Connor Franta to Appear at BookCon
ReedPop’s BookCon will showcase some big YouTube talent this year at New York’s Javits Center on May 31.
Justine Ezarik (aka iJustine), Connor Franta, Joey Graceffa, and Shane Dawson will all speak about their literary projects during the convention. All four YouTubers are working with Atria Books’ Keywords Press to publish their stories/memoirs.
Atria Books created Keywords Press especially for digital stars to expand their influence beyond the web. Atria launched the imprint in 2014 in partnership with United Talent Agency, which represents many of the stars publishing titles via the imprint. Other YouTubers to have published books through Keywords Press include Shay Butler (of the Shaytards) and Marcus Johns.Tags: atria books, bookcon, Connor Franta, ijustine, Joey Graceffa, Justine Ezarik, Keywords Press, reedpop, Shane Dawson, united talent agency
