Today’s edition is made possible in part by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., providers of provocative and timely titles for general readers, and professional and scholarly books throughout the humanities and social sciences. Visit them at BookExpo America, booth 3758.
The family that is book publishing is preparing for another annual reunion – otherwise known as BookExpo America. For nearly a week, beginning Monday, June 4, the largest book trade fair in the United States will welcome nearly 8,000 men and women to the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
One of BEA’s most important—and fastest growing constituencies— is librarians, who take to the show floor with passion and professionalism.
Special guests Tina Jordan, Vice President for the Association of American Publishers, and Nora Rawlinson, founder and editor of EarlyWord.com, join CCC’s Chris Kenneally with Publishers Weekly’s Andrew Albanese to learn what librarians will get from BEA in 2012, and what BEA gets from having them there.
Programs planned include AAP Librarian Book Buzz, with publishers sharing news on the forthcoming season, and the 4th Annual Librarian Shout ‘n Share @ BEA, when development librarians share their top picks (and best buys) direct from the show floor.
