One of the biggest events for us "bookish" people is to attend BEA, or Book Expo of America.
This event extravaganza is the #1 book and author convention in the United States and has been held at the Javitz Convention Center in New York City for the past few years. Participants get to meet authors, learn about new books and talk with publishers. Unfortunately this year it's held during the week and schedule conflicts were preventing me from attending. BUT.... Jessica, informed me that weekend the Javitz center will hold Bookcon!
So who, in the literary world, is going to be there? No other than some of the best!! Like Marie Lu, Meg Cabot, Jacqueline Woodson, James Patterson, Rainbow Rowell, Gayle Foreman, Ellen Hopkins... and the list goes on and on! Sooo excited!! Check the website for the full list of guests!
So Jackie and I are counting down the days with you until Bookcon 2015! We are going to try to highlight some of the authors attending this event!
