My ramble about how awesome it is and how upset I am that I won’t be able to attend...
On Monday May 23—Thursday May 26 there will be editors, agents, bloggers, and (of course) authors from all over the country coming to attend the annual BookExpo America Conference in New York. BookExpo America (commonly referred to within the book publishing industry as BEA) is the largest annual book trade fair in the United States. BEA is almost always held in a major city over four days in late May and/or early June.
At the BEA there will news on the publishing industry, book signings, and I heard some authors (for example Leigh Fallon) are giving out ARC copies of their books.
Although I live in Boston (a mere 5 hours away from NY) I won’t be able to attend even if I wanted to. *Stares broodingly out the window* So to those of you who are lucky enough to able to attend—I’m super jealous of you & I want to read a blog post about how it all went as soon as you come back. :)
