2018 BookExpo

BookExpo America is the country’s largest ​book fair, held this year in NYC’s Javits Center. Publishing professionals, librarians, booksellers, ​and authors​ all gather under one giant roof to meet with colleagues, see ​publishers’ ​upcoming books, ​sell foreign rights, meet with media, ​and (best of all) ​meet the writers and editors who are shaping the industry.​ As always, the Javits Center was ​the place to be with books and the people who love and create them—such a fun scene, especially since ​for a first-time attendee​ like me​.

The event offers a variety of educational panels, ​high energy booths with displays of books, ​and ​long lines for book signings snaked through the aisles. ​We loved ​the​ chance to connect with colleagues and ​feel the amazing energy​. ​Itreally is astonishing to see the huge number and variety of books that are ready to enter the world and find their readers!
