635785231962197418-Scott-DreamHome-hiReedPOP’s BookCon is coming up in a few months and today HGTV’s Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott have been announced as guests.  The twin brothers will appear on Saturday, May 14th for their panel “Dream Home on a Budget: Find it, Fix it, Live it” and will then meet with fans during an autographing session.  Their upcoming book, “Dream Home”, is the answer to fans asking the popular Property Brothers to publish a book collecting their experience and expertise in “turning drab properties into stunning dream homes.”

“For years our fans have been asking us to publish a book and I can’t think of anywhere better to celebrate the launch than BookCon,” says Drew Scott. “Dream Home is the next best thing to having us personally renovate your house.”

So what do HGTV’s Property Brothers have to do with a site celebrating pop-culture?  Jonathan and Drew Scott have become undeniable icons through their hit television series.  But outside of Jonathan being a licensed contractor and Drew being a real estate agent, both twins are also actors and illusionists.  Drew Scott appeared on The CW series Smallville and Jonathan appeared on The X-Files.

It’s great seeing the Property Brothers find success in their endeavors and I, for one, could not be more excited for “Dream Home.”

Will you be at BookCon this May 14th?  We were at BookCon last year as it took place at the Javits Center in New York City.  This year, ReedPOP has moved the event to Chicago, McCormick Place, and it looks to be an even bigger and better event than last year!

Tickets for BookCon are on sale now. Additional exciting details about BookCon Exhibitors, Guests and Sponsors will be revealed in the coming weeks. For more information and to purchase Tickets, please visit TheBookCon.com or BookCon’s social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
