What Book Bloggers are Looking Forward to at BEA – Outside Events

There is a lot going on during BEA, including events outside of Javits. It is difficult to know what to go to, but (hopefully) knowing what panels OTHER book bloggers are interested in is helpful. Head to one of these events and you are likely to meet some other bloggers. This isn’t list isn’t exhaustive, but I have built it based on what you all told me about your BEA plans, what I have put together on my schedule, and a fantastic schedule created by Heather of Age 30 Books.

Check out my posts on panels and author signings book bloggers are excited about.

  • There’s also a self-guided bookstore tour / open house on Monday, May 24. Details are on the ABA site, along with a PDF map: http://news.bookweb.org/news/7526.html

  • There is also Kidlit Drink night Wednesday night at Houndstooth Pub. Monday before BEA there is the Teen Author Carnival. Tuesday night I’ll also be going to Books of Wonder for their class of 2010 debut authors event.

  • Yay, I’m pumped for the Literary Pub Crawl!

  • I’m hoping I’m up for the literary pub crawl. Sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

    I’m still bummed my flight is so late on Wednesday and I can’t attend either of those events.
