BookExpo America: Buzz Books & Photos

Recently we attended the annual BookExpo America trade show, the largest publishing gathering in the country, to promote our current and forthcoming Fall 2011 titles. The reception this year was quite spectacular, and many of our authors–Tayari Jones (Silver Sparrow), Jon Michaud (When Tito Loved Clara), Martha Southgate (A Taste of Salt), Heidi Durrow (The Girl Who Fell from the Sky), Ilene Beckerman (The Smartest Woman I Know), and Naomi Benaron (Running the Rift)–signed books and galleys and made appearances in the booth. We were especially thrilled to see some of our titles listed as “buzz” books of the year–coverage included USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and two articles in Publishers Weekly. Below, some photos from the four-day event.
