BookExpo America is the premier North American publishing event of the year! Hosted at the Javits Center in New York City from June 4 – 7, BEA offers four days of exhibits, conferences, author signings, and special events. On the main floor, hundreds of exhibitors set up booths to promote their books – from big six publishers to distributors, small houses, and independent presses. Each morning, Author Breakfasts are hosted by celebrity Masters of Ceremonies, such as Steven Colbert and Chris Colfer. Author Stages feature authors in an interview format throughout each day, offering BEA visitors a way to meet and greet with the authors. BEA also includes the largest author autographing program in the United States, as well as conferences on topics such as digital publishing. In fact, several of our members will be speaking on panels at BEA! To learn more about BEA, visit their website at www.bookexpoamerica.com.
