Just a Thought -- Book Expo America 2012
You may have noticed last week that the Readers Advisors desk was missing two of its regular librarians. We headed off to New York City to meet with hundreds of other librarians, along with booksellers, publishers, authors, and bibliophiles of all stripes at this year’s Book Expo America conference. Held every year in June, BEA is a great way to keep up with what’s happening in the world of books, from forthcoming hot titles to book club reading suggestions to those pesky eBooks and how libraries and publishers can work together to make them available to patrons. A highlight is always getting to meet the authors themselves, of course, and get books signed! We came back with piles and piles of great forthcoming books that we think you’re just going to love. Here are just a few of the great titles you have to look forward to!
