BEA: Book Lovers' Paradise

During the first week of June, BEA shook New York’s Javitz Convention Center with all its splendor. Publishers from all over the world visited the city to showcase their wonderful material.

I’m a bookmaker at heart. Every time BEA comes around, I’m reading blogs and researching, extremely excited to see what will be showcased by authors and publishing houses. To those that possess my book addiction for both creating and buying books, BEA is the closest thing to book paradise you'll ever get.

I’m glad to report that it was an amazing, crowded show. And even though digital was a big part of the show, traditionally printed books were handed out as much as other years, which made book geeks like me extremely happy.

Our booth was super busy with lots buzz around the release of our new imprint, Capstone Young Readers. We had author signings and wonderful giveaways, like the bags everyone begged for every five minutes. We couldn’t keep up with the popular demand!

Check out the Capstone team that attended the show, posing just for you blog readers! I hope you had as wonderful of a time at the show as we did!

Cheers for another inspiring Book Expo!
