Wow. BookExpo America has grown quite a bit since Mark Twain spoke at the first convention in 1902. Expanding from an audience of 60 to a crowd this year of 25,000, BEA is an explosion of activity, and we're extremely excited to be part of it.
For the third year in a row, Book Search team members are here in DC to do demonstrations, talk with authors and publishers, chat with librarians and connect with fellow book lovers. Along the way, we'll post reports and photos from the exhibition hall. So if you weren't able to make it to DC this year, check back over the next couple of days and experience some of the fun right here.
