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.
For bloggers attending the Book Blogger Convention, there have been publishing house tours set up on Monday and Tuesday. Information can be found on the Book Blogger Convention website, but you need to fill out their google document TODAY (Thursday).
