BEA- Day 4

Unknown

 

Ah, the last day of BEA and the end of a great trip into New York. Today is the day when BEA opens to the public. Honestly, I’ve never stayed for this. It’s super crowded and I’m exhausted. This year, I purchased an Avid Reader Pass–meaning I was able to obtain passes to certain author signings. So…I’m staying just to use my tickets and meet three fabulous authors–Holly Black, Cassandra Clare and Maggie Stiefvater. Since I’m there, I will also attend a few other signings too:)

But my absolute favorite part of the day will be having coffee with a few of my blogger gals from Pub Hub: Kate Brauning, Jessica Ward, and Eliza Tilton. Rumor has it that we’ll be joined by another fabulous writer or two:)

Good-bye New York. It’s been a blast, but I’ll see you again soon!

BEA 2014- Day 1

images-1

This week it’s all about BEA (Book Expo America).

Book bloggers, agents, authors, teachers, librarians, and publishers are all gearing up for a full three days of BEA. BEA is held each year at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York.

For book bloggers, Wednesday begins with the annual BEA Bloggers Conference. This is one day that I don’t attend. It’s my travel day and traditionally, I attend the Teen Author Carnival held at Jefferson Market Public Library. There are always great author shenanigans and fun to be had at this event. See the website for more information.

This guys, is a warm up for opening day of BEA. Thursday will be full of getting up early, standing in line, luging around a back-breaking amount of books, seeing old friends and making some new ones. But as much as we all complain about our swollen ankles and aching feet, nothing is better than attending BEA!

Up tomorrow…Thursday’s schedule and online Twitter #YAParty!
