This year, Book Expo America returns to New York City’s Javits Center for events starting May 24th and, back by popular demand, the show will return to three full days in the exhibit hall.  With a little something for everyone, “the largest publishing event in North America” is sure to be a blockbuster this year.

For those looking to see the celebs:  Headliners for this year’s events include actresses Diane Keaton and Julianne Moore, media personality Jim Lehrer, and famed writers Katherine Patterson, Erik Larson, Anne Enright, Jeffrey Eugenides, and Charlaine Harris.

For those with an international focus:  The Global Market Forum, which is an international highlight each year, will focus on Publishing in Italy.  This year’s program will be produced with the support of the Italian Trade Commission and the Associazione Italiana Editori.

For those with a digital interest:  This year, the second annual Book Blogger Convention joins BEA on-site on May 27th with a cocktail reception on the 26th.  A great way to learn more about blogging from some of the stars of the Twittersphere.

Register now and mark your calendars for Book Expo.
