You won’t want to miss bestselling author Steve Berry, the FAPAcom Keynote Speaker
The Keynote Speaker at FAPAcon2021 will be bestselling author Steve Berry, the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of twenty novels.
History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel. It’s his passion, one he shares with his wife, Elizabeth, which led them to create History Matters, a foundation dedicated to historic preservation. Since 2009 Steve and Elizabeth have crossed the country to save endangered historic treasures, raising money via lectures, receptions, galas, luncheons, dinners, and their popular writers’ workshops. To date, 3,500 students have attended those workshops with over $1.5 million dollars raised.
Steve was born and raised in Georgia, graduating from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. He was a trial lawyer for 30 years and held elective office for 14 of those years. He is a founding member of International Thriller Writers—a group of nearly 6,000 thriller writers from around the world—and served three years as its co-president.
His books have been translated into 41 languages with 25,000,000 copies sold in 52 countries. In 2010, an NPR survey named The Templar Legacy one of the top 100 thrillers ever written.
Steve’s Keynote is scheduled to begin on Saturday, July 31 at 11:45 with Q&A at the end.

Saturday’s sessions will feature four topics: growing your book business, pre-launch strategies, understanding legal issues, and exploring out-of-the-box marketing strategies. Sponsors and vendors will also be available to answer questions about their products and services.
In addition to two days of valuable information, FAPAcon2021 attendees should also plan to attend the Friday evening Pool Party where you can join your fellow conference attendees for a casual social get-together designed to give you an opportunity to mingle and network with old and new friends.
The President’s Annual Book Awards Celebration is on Saturday night. It’s an exciting night of celebrating the book award finalists and honoring the people who are making a difference in our publishing community. Please note that this year, FAPA has switched from a sit-down banquet to a more affordable heavy hors d’oeuvres menu to accompany our celebration of our esteemed book award winners.
So… bring your questions. Bring your enthusiasm. And plenty of business cards so you can make some valuable connections. Remember, there’s no need to go it alone when you’re with FAPA!
