Dan Brown among guests at next BookCon

NEW YORK (AP) " "The Da Vinci Code" author Dan Brown is coming to BookCon.

The fourth annual fan-based show will be held next June 3-4 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, according to ReedPop, which produces the event. Earlier that week, the publishing industry will meet at the Javits Center for its annual national convention, BookExpo.

Brown will likely discuss his next novel, "Origin," scheduled to come out in September and featuring the author's favored protagonist, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon. ReedPop announced Thursday that such popular young adult authors as Cassandra Clare, Shannon Hale and Danielle Paige also are expected to attend.

BookCon was started as a consumer-oriented extension of BookExpo. Previous speakers have included Amy Poehler, John Green and Mindy Kaling.
