I'm gonna BEA
BookExpo America May 28-31.
I just bought my librarian one day tag. Now of course I read actually books and not just comics-- but don't overlook BEA as a great time to meet graphic novelists. Just the Friday autographing schedule includes Dash Shaw, Adam Rapp, Laurie Stolarz...and 1500 exhibit booths. I even saw redhead Julianne Moore will be there with her Freckleface Strawberry children's books.
I've never been to BEA, but I know that librarians come home loaded with advance copies from publishers. Well, I do know Javits from my NY Comicon adventures so we'll see how it goes. $55 for a one day ticket, and that's the early bird rate.
