20 Something Reads Newsletter

Good thing we rested up over Memorial Day weekend as the last days of May/first days of June made for a big week for publishing with both BookExpo and BookCon, held at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. From Wednesday to Friday, the annual BookExpo convention brought together publishing professionals, booksellers, librarians and bloggers, who came from across the world to learn about the upcoming books for fall, meet and greet beloved and debut authors, attend panels on publishing-related topics, and walk away with tote bags full of books to peruse and talk about. During the weekend, the BookCon event brought in readers from the general public to do much of the same. In essence, it was a five-day-long love fest of books and authors.
