It's that time of the year again, peeps--a special time of inedible food and delicious books, of authors and impossible taxi lines, of Javitz Center bathrooms and a race for free galleys! That's right...Book Expo America is here! For the first time, BEA will be open to the general public, so I hope I get a chance to see y'all at one of my events below. Happy BEA week!
