BookExpo, it's like Comic-Con but with fewer Princess Leias in metal bikinis

Princess Leia convention or Las Vegas librarians?I'm heading to NYC next week where I'll be tossed about that sea of humanity known as BookExpo America (BEA). I've never been, though I've attended the San Diego Comic-Con and the Frankfurt Buche Messe, so I'm envisioning this as somewhere in-between.

What will I be doing there or thereabouts? Let's see, I'll be mingling at a couple of swanky industry cocktail parties where I'm hoping to bump into the reviewer for Publishers Weekly who panned HOTEL. (I'm not mad, just curious—what's the penalty for misdemeanor assault in New York City?)

I'll also be at Random House for a Library Journal Breakfast, back at the Javits Center for an ABA Bookseller Luncheon, doing some interview-type stuff for Google and BookPage, and last but certainly not least, I'll be at the Random House booth (#2739) on Friday at 10:00 AM where I'll be (wait for it...) signing and giving away 200 advance reader copies of SONGS OF WILLOW FROST.

See you soon.

Somebody panned HOTEL? Lemme at 'em. I'll straighten them out. I'm small, but strong like streetcar.
