Watch BookExpo America's Event Stream Right Here!

Hey, publishing peeps! I can't attend BookExpo America in NYC this year, but — with BEA's handy streaming player — I can make like a fly on its exhibit center's walls. I know there will be lots of great stuff to catch up on each day, but I'm particularly hoping to catch glimpses of some favorite (scheduled!) names in children's literature, such as . . .

Walter Dean Myers
Lois Lowry
John Green
Sharon Creech
R. L. Stine
Mo Willems
Dav Pilkey
Eoin Colfer

Fun, right? I thought some of you might like to join me (it's not stalking if we do it together), so please check back here June 5–7 to catch conference highlights.

[Updating the post on July 7 to mention that I've replaced the streaming player that previously inhabited this space with the sentence you're reading NOW. The player automatically started showing videos whenever anyone visited this post or the blog's home page, and that proved too annoying. To me. Honestly, that sort of thing drives me nuts! So the player went bye-bye. The wonderful videos are still available at BookExpo's main site, though, so please do visit that to catch up on or relive some BEA events!]
