Reports from Book Expo America June 2, 2013

Posted by shannonmuir in Book Expo America.

A wide variety of offerings appeared on the Exhibit Hall floor at this year’s Book Expo America at the Javits Center in New York City. Not only were the major North American publishers on hand, along with smaller presses, but a wide variety of international books stood out – from Mexico (the guest of honor), to China, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and many others. The types of books on hand ranged from novels to cookbooks, young adult novels to children picture books, comic books and media-tie in product, and more. Digital publishing featured in an entire area, bringing in a mix from the people who publish the content to services that allowed users to take the reins and join the ranks of the self-published. The Exhibit Floor really showed how diverse the concept of content has become and the many ways in the 21st century that people can discover words.
