LACE is excited to welcome the Manhattan Public Library to our show. They will have a booth to share activities and books from our amazing local library. They will also be hosting at panel at 1pm.
“What Would the Hulk Read?” – What would the Hulk read in his free time? And what about Bruce Banner? Or Luke Skywalker, or Kylo Ren? Staff from the Manhattan Public Library will be recommending books to characters based on their personalities and interests. We’ll be covering fandoms from Supernatural to Studio Ghibli, and we’ll recommend dystopias, high fantasy, nonfiction, and more! Be prepared to ask us for book recommendations for your own favorite characters.
We are excited to share the official map for LACE 2018! We can’t wait to see you all there!

LACE is excited to welcome to our show for the first time author Jessica Benoist-Young!
Jessica Benoist-Young is a self-published author and freelance ghostwriter. She self-published the mystery comedy novel ‘Strip Search’ in 2015. The novel has found acclaim with readers for its witty characters and page-turning plot.
In 2017, she published ‘The Devil’s Triangle’, a humorous, supernatural cruise-ship romp that readers called ” hilarious, mysterious and wild”.
With her sister, Glee and Supergirl star, Melissa Benoist, Jessica is in the planning and proposal stages of a Young Adult Supernatural Fantasy novel they plan to write together. Jessica has also written over a dozen paranormal romance and fantasy romance novels over the last two years as a ghostwriter.
When not writing, Jessica loves dancing, board games, stand up comedy, and many activities of the outdoorsy variety–gardening, hiking, skiing–and her birdwatching in her backyard led to the creation of the ‘live tweet show’ Real Housebirds of Kansas, a satirical online chronicle of bird feeder drama.
She has been married for ten years and has two sons named after presidents. She knows entirely too much about coffee and movies, and would really like to own a pet snake someday.
