Live Auction

"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." – Benjamin Franklin

Friday, November 1st @ 8pm

Rather than selling cattle, our auctioneer will be taking bids on items donated by attendee authors and corporate donors. During our Denim Celebration, wave your hat for a chance at experiences, collections, and a few wild card surprises!

Those attending private dinners or gatherings will have time to join in the fun.


Silent Auction

Thursday, October 31st — Saturday, November 2nd

A Silent Auction will be ongoing throughout the entire conference. It will be located near the Bookroom in the main area and will be filled with wonderful donation items for you to bid on. [Donations are being accepted through October 15th.]


Both Live & Silent Auction proceeds to to the Bouchercon 2019 official charity: Literacy Instruction for Texas (LIFT).
