Kansas Authors Club Bookroom
The Bookroom sold books by Kansas Authors Club members. Some authors offered convention discounts. Book signings by convention speakers and Kansas Authors Club members were scheduled in the Bookroom throughout the convention: a wonderful opportunity to buy works by fellow Kansas authors.

A sign up board was available outside the book room during the conference. Preference was given for speakers at the conference.
A number of books by William Allen White and other Kansas Authors were offered and sold by silent auction in the Bookroom. Delightful objects of art and other items were also auctioned. Proceeds were to be used to support the convention.
