Book Expo America (BEA) / Blogger Con / Book Con! #BEA16

BEA (Book Expo America) kicks off this week in Chicago! I am so excited about attending this year. One of my favorite things about BEA is meeting people. I've gone twice now, and it was a blast both times. I loved meeting new people, hanging out with friends, attending the amazing publisher events and of course the site seeing around NYC. Books + Friends = AWESOMENESS! I have loved being able to put names with faces. I'm really excited to spend time in Chicago, this year. If you're in Chicago this week, please stop by and say hi! I'd love to meet you!! 

I'm extremely excited about heading out to Chicago today, but I'm even more thrilled to be apart of this year's event as both a moderator for Tor Teen (on Friday), as well as a Blogger Con Round Table leader! Mixed into all the fun i.e., the author signings, publisher parties, meet ups, and everything else going on this week, there are some awesome panels happening.

 For bloggers attending BEA, Wednesday is Blogger Con. Trust me, you don't want to miss it this year. With panels, and round tables through out the day, there's going to be something for everyone. I am really thrilled to be a Round Table host for Wednesday afternoon's Blogger Con Round Tables. Round tables will be taking place between 1:00 - 2:50, with  3 rotations happening throw out. It's going to be so much fun! Get all the details here! If you're at BEA, stop by our table and say hi~ we'll have chocolate at our table! 

On Friday, do not miss the Tor Teen panel: Surviving Fictional Worlds with Tor Teen! Authors Susan Dennard, Kristen Simmons and Sarah Porter, and I will be chatting about their books, and much more! I am thrilled to moderate this panel! The fun kicks off at 3:30 at the Uptown Stage! I can not wait! Get more information about our panel here

If you're attending BEA this year, stick around for Saturday's festivities aka BOOKCON! There is an amazing line up of authors attending, including Cassandra Clare, Veronica Roth, Leigh Bardugo, and many others. Get your BookCon info here

If you're attending any of these events this week, have a great time! If you have a moment, come say hi! I'd love to meet you.
