It’s that time of year again! Book Expo America and Book Con are coming to New York City May 31 through June 2.
Come out and get serious about your publishing with a variety of other authors, readers, publishers, and book marketers.
As you would expect, Lulu will have a booth at the Expo, and we’ll be hanging out throughout the event, giving out cool prizes, promoting self-publishing, and enjoying all the terrific events and speakers BEA has to offer.
The Expo includes are a range of speakers, including Hillary Clinton on the main stage June 1, as well as Mary Higgins Clark, Neil Patrick Harris, R.L. Stine, and Stephen King throughout the event.
Each day will also feature sessions on a variety of publishing industry. There are so many, I’m not even going to try to list them here. Just head over to the Expo’s Session’s page to find the comprehensive list. For anyone involved in the publishing industry, you’ll find something among these sessions to pique your interests and expand your publishing knowledge.
And if all that isn’t enough, the second half of the event will be the reader-driven Book Expo, with their own unique list of speakers, including authors Dan Brown and Bill Nye. Find their complete main stage list here. The two events combine to provide a thorough perspective of the industry from writing and publishing, through to marketing and reading. There is something for everyone at the Book Expo and Convention!
Now that I’ve tantalized you with all those great speakers and an expansive list of sessions hosted at the event, I’ve got the best for last.
