Next week, from May 29-31, is Book Expo America (BEA) in New York, and I will be representing Annick Press at booth 420 -- come by and say hi! We'll have all our spring books on display, along with some of our fall titles, hot off the presses! (And for fall titles that haven't been published yet, we'll have sample pages for you to check out.) We'll also have some free goodies, including posters, bookmarks, and special fortune cookies (first come, first served!).
If you're new to BEA, here are some tasty tidbits to chew on:
- BEA blog entry: why a smaller book expo might work out better
- BEATweetup: party in person with book folk you met on Twitter!
- Preparing for your first BEA: blog post full of helpful tips (from last year but still relevant)
- The best sightseeing in New York and a list of New York attractions: discover the Big Apple!
And of course there's tons of information on the BEA website -- have fun preparing your list of authors to meet, events and seminars to attend, and pavilions to browse! (If you're a bookseller, you can sign up for Speed Dating with Children's Authors... sounds like fun!)
See you there!
