We will have all titles for sale at the event.

That said, it would be great for you to take advantage and pre-order books for pick-up at the event.
Simply add your books to the cart, check-out with a credit card, and in the notes field, indicate, "pick up at 2018 Bio".
For us to hold these titles for you must pre-purchase them.

Thank you, in advance, for supporting authors and independent bookstores!


Of all the programs and services provided to BIO members, Biographers International Organization is proudest of its annual conference. Each year, BIO brings together some of the finest practitioners of the craft of biography to help guide, mentor, encourage, and advise attendees on a wide variety of topics relating to the the writing, researching, and selling of biography.

The conference also offers a unique opportunity to hear some of biography’s best — and best-known — writers share their stories. Each year’s luncheon features a keynote address by the recipient of the BIO Award — past speakers have included Jean Strouse, Robert Caro, Stacy Schiff, and Taylor Branch — as well as special sessions featuring biographers and historians like David Maraniss, Evan Thomas, and Douglas Brinkley.  This year British author Richard Holmes, beloved for his biographies and memoirs about writing biography, is the winner of the ninth annual BIO Award. 

If you would like a complete set of all the books by the featured authors, 1 copy of each of the 29 books, we are offering the complete set for a special price of $700.
