Book Euphoria’s 2020 Carnivale Weekend

You are cordially invited to Book Euphoria’s 2020 Carnivale Weekend!
Thursday, March 19th – Sunday, March 22nd.

Chi-town Flavor + Afro-Caribbean Vibes + Carnivals = Carnivale

All around the world, people gather at carnivals to celebrate life. The Caribbean calls it a creative and artistic festival of expression. In parts of Africa, the lyrical rhythms and vibrant street parades are the heart of this celebration. No matter which rich history and culture you follow, Book Euphoria can’t wait for our awesome lineup of authors and fantastic readers to come together during our 2020 weekend event!

We’ll celebrate and share our literary love, while intertwining some Chi-town flavor and Afro-Caribbean vibes. The weekend’s theme will include carnival games, prizes, exotic costumes, soul dancing, loads of laughter and heartfelt fun! Time to flaunt your feathers and bring out your bright colors for a spring Carnivale with our own special Book Euphoria twist.
